We appreciate the folks at GrepBeat taking the time to learn more about Companah and the modern approach we are taking for pet owners. GrepBeat is a media startup covering the tech community in Raleigh-Durham. They endeavor to tell the stories of this area’s mighty tech startups and their entrepreneurs in an engaging and colorful way. Think of it as TechCrunch for the Triangle, with a splash of BuzzFeed for seasoning.
The article is pretty comprehensive in telling our story, and the green technology that we are bringing to this area:
Companah uses a process called water cremation, or alkaline hydrolysis, in which the body goes through a chemical process that reduces it down to bone fragments, which are then turned into a product similar to ashes. The process is known as “green cremation” due to its smaller carbon footprint, and is used on humans as well.
