Washington State is on track to become the first state to allow “human composting,” or the “accelerated conversion of human remains to soil.”
Where in the world do these people come up with ideas like this one?
What began as a passion project, and then became a new company is now the focus of a bill moving through the Washington State Legislature.
Senate Bill 5001 would allow for human composting, also known as “recomposition” in Washington. Katrina Spade is the CEO of “Recompose,” the company aiming to be the first to build a facility for human composting.
“There’s really only two options for when we die: cremation and burial. Neither (of those options) felt particularly meaningful to and I think if that’s the case, its’ true for others as well.”
Katrina has spent years working to gain support for human composting, most recently with Dr. Lynne Carpenter at the Soil Science Department at Washington State University.
“They’ve already done lots of research about the safe and effective ways to recycle animals back to the land on farms.”
A process familiar to Washington’s large agricultural communities became the focus of a new study at WSU, using the bodies of 6 human donors. “We proved recomposition was indeed safe and effective for humans as well.” More
Human composting how morbid are these people? What’s next, Soylent Green? Every gardening book I have ever read says never, never, ever put meat products in your compost because the risk of spreading disease is much too high.
So have all the garden experts suddenly changed their minds? Or is this just more mindless drivel from Democrat Socialists?
