Human Remains Can Be Composted in Washington State

What do you think happens when you die?

Are you just six feet under?

Worm chow?

Pushing up daisies?Despite all the flowery metaphors, most humans that opt for a burial don't actually see many worms or much dirt.

Thick, sealed coffins do a pretty solid job of making sure the organic materials of our bodies decay in isolation and don't return to the environment.Washington state hopes to change that as they have legalized the composting of human remains as one option people can choose.

It's still not as simple as just digging a hole for yourself in the backyard, which would be illegal, but licensed facilities will now offer natural organic reduction services which can break down a body into usable soil in as little as a few weeks.
