We are increasingly utilising green burials, but did you know that Washington State, the first state to do so, is encouraging people to consider human composting?. No, me neither. The process is known as “Natural Organic Reduction”, and turns a corpse into four wheelbarrows worth of soil in four to six weeks. The process will be available in Seattle from May 2020 this year. It will save around a metric Tonne of CO2 per person , if used instead of Cremation. You have a choice of using the soil in your own garden, or if that idea doesn’t appeal to you, it will be used for conservation purposes elsewhere. If you ever Saw the film “Waterworld”, you’ll have seen one of the atolls residence put into a human compost pit- So this isn’t the first time that an idea like this might have been a science fiction idea that has been transformed into reality. It involves you being placed along side woodchips, and aeration being introduced to the environment to increase microbial activity. I find the idea quite attractive- it really is being at one with our environment, and also giving birth to new life. What could be a better end, than new beginnings ?
