I bet those composting Distributists are very excited about this news...

World's First Human Composting Site To Open

The world’s first funeral home dedicated to composting human beings is set to open in 2021 – allowing those left behind to turn their dearly departed into soil. US ‘deathcare’ company Recompose will be able to turn the deceased into a cubic yard of soil over a period of as little as 30 days, using one-eighth of the energy of cremation and saving as much as a metric ton of carbon dioxide from being produced compared to other forms of burial. The firm’s first site in Seattle, Washington, will be able to hold 75 people at a time. The project was given the green light by Washington state legislators who voted to allow the style of burial known as natural organic reduction earlier this year – the first US state to explicitly do so. Set to take effect in May 2020, the law will allow funeral homes to carry out the contained, accelerated conversion of human remains to soil, an idea spurred on by Recompose as a means to ensure environmentally friendly burials can occur in cities and urban areas lacking in natural burial grounds.
