Australia’s Pure Souls Pet Aquacremation has become the first pet crematorium in the country to go carbon-neutral.

The cremation’s unique approach to saying goodbye is different, too. It uses water, not fire, to gently “take care of” pets.

The traditional flame creation of an average-sized dog emits about 45kgs of CO2. Water cremation is described as offering a gentler, greener alternative with minimal impact on the environment. 

The innovative method is also known as Alkaline Hydrolysis. It uses a gentle flow of 95 per cent water and 5 per cent alkali to mimic the natural decomposition process. 

The company said its mission is being kind to our environment while helping pet owners bid farewell to their furry friends. Its crematorium uses green power for its cremation process, which means no pollution.

But the crematorium doesn’t stop at being green; the team at Pure Souls said they know how hard it is to say goodbye to a pet, and they’re here to make it as gentle and respectful as possible. They also handcraft pet memorials and urns from eco-friendly materials.

The company will also plant a tree for every pet cremated, a sweet way to remember your furry friend and help the environment.

“Pure Souls is all about giving you a kind and gentle way to say goodbye to your pets, with the bonus of being good to our planet,” said the company.

“It’s a win-win for pet owners who care about their beloved animals and the world we all live in.”
