Washington is 1st state to allow composting of human bodies

Quote:
Ashes to ashes, guts to dirt.

Gov. Jay Inslee signed legislation Tuesday making Washington the first state to approve composting as an alternative to burying or cremating human remains.

It allows licensed facilities to offer “natural organic reduction,” which turns a body, mixed with substances such as wood chips and straw, into about two wheelbarrows’ worth of soil in a span of several weeks.

Loved ones are allowed to keep the soil to spread, just as they might spread the ashes of someone who has been cremated — or even use it to plant vegetables or a tree.
Soylent green anyone?

I like it. Graveyards are waste of land and cremation is just ashes but compost can be put to good use.

See that tree out back, little Johnny? Those apples are fertilized by grandpa!

Actually there are "bio urns" that use the ashes to fertilize a tree. I like the idea to be honest. I'd rather have my kids (if I ever have any and I die when they are young) visting and talking to a live tree than a cold slab of stone. They can learn how energy cannot be created or destroyed and in essence my energy would be in the tree or whatever.
Tater and Miss Sally like this.
