SEATTLE: Composting Human Remains in 2021

Burial? Too expensive! Cremation? Who wants an urn? Let’s just put grandma in the compost pile!

World’s First Human Composting Facility is Coming to Seattle in 2021

In November, around 75 people attended what was described by the Seattle Times as “a housewarming party for a funeral home where bodies would not be burned or buried, but laid in individual vessels to become clean, usable compost.”

Recompose offers an alternative choice to cremation and conventional burial methods. Our service – recomposition – gently converts human remains into soil, so that we can nourish new life after we die.
