Colorado set to legalize human composting

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Colorado is set to legalise human composting to allow people to turn their bodies into soil after their death.

A bill, which has already passed one legislative chamber in the state, would allow people to op for the “natural reduction” burying method.

That involves a body being placed in a “cradle” then into a vessel over a bed of wood chips, alfalfa and straw, reports the Denver Post.

The body then stays in a greenhouse-like facility for 30 days as it transforms into soil, but non-organic materials such as artificial hips are removed.

Bio humans. Giving back, even when they're gone. I'm going to fertilize a trout stream when I'm ashes. :tu:

Edit: hmmm..that doesn't read right. Ohwell.jpg
