Washington state braces for eco-friendly 'human composting'

Recommended Posts

There is no reason why a human death needs to cause soil toxicity and blight. The carcass can now be used as nutrients to grow a tree.

It does my heart good when enlightened minds finally come up with an eco-friendly policy. No more erroneous 'sanctity of human life' nonsense. This is a small, but essential part, of the larger Green New Deal, that is inevitably our future.

SEATTLE - As Washington prepares to become the first state to legalize "human composting." The bill is expected to be signed Tuesday. 

Even the lawmaker who sponsored the bill awaiting action by the governor receives emails from people around the country expressing disgust.

"I think the vision they have is that you throw Grandpa out in the backyard with food scraps," said state Sen. Jamie Pedersen, a Seattle Democrat.

In fact, Pedersen said, the idea is that "bodies are being reduced to soil in a way that is essentially an acceleration of a very natural process." The practice reduces the environmental impact, he said, and saves land from being taken up by cemetery plots and headstones. It also cuts carbon emissions from burials and cremations.

"I don't want to leave a toxic footprint when I go," said Schoen, a media tech executive who urged state legislators to vote for the bill.

"We have lobbyists waiting to go to Washington D.C. We hope to someday make this the law of the land."

 

It's no accident that eco-friendly options are taking root in Washington, a state with a strong environmental ethic and below-average participation in organized religion. Washington also has the country's highest rate of cremation  A company called Recompose,  is preparing to offer human composting in a process marketed delicately as "natural organic reduction," letting microbes do the work of breaking down remains. Composting would save more than a ton of carbon emissions per person. "With traditional burial, the model accounted for caskets, embalming, a headstone and a concrete grave liner, as well as the maintenance of the gravesite. Bodies will morph within weeks into soil suitable for pushing up daisies."

 

"The idea of returning to nature so directly and being folded back into the cycle of life and death is actually pretty beautiful. Unlike religious alternatives that poison the earth as well as the mind."  The Catholic Church believes that disposing human remains in such a manner fails to show enough respect for the body of the deceased.

This is not anything that Washingtonians need to "brace themselves" for, it is simply an option that can be chosen by the person prior to his death. No one will be REQUIRED to  be buried in an eco-friendly manner. American Indians certainly did not bury their dead within a $4000 steel coffin inside a $1000 concrete vault. Some placed them on platforms in the air for the vultures to scavenge, others buried them in buffalo robes and such.

I've already made my arrangements.  I will be cremated, my ashes will be placed in an eco friendly biodegradable container, and a tree will be planted in my ashes.  When it is big enough, my children will take me out and plant me.

 

I would prefer to do the composting because the cremating process does cause air pollution.  Hopefully, it will become more common by the time I go.

LOL....the "Green Deal". It'd be nice to see a slew of leftist buy into it hardcore and go off themselves......for the betterment of the planet of course.

Will liberals give murderers who buried their victims an "eco-friendly" defense?

My guess is that some people will make better compost than others- depending on how full of shit they are

Human waste or human body compost = heavy metal toxins and spreading of virus, it will provide a way to eliminate large numbers of body's after you have been replaced by robotics or just legally eliminated by a socialist government.
