    Washington State Bill Proposes ‘Composting’ of Human Corpses


    10 Feb 2019

    Washington State is poised to become the first state in the Union to allow “human composting,” or the “accelerated conversion of human remains to soil.”

    Senate Bill 5001, titled “Concerning human remains,” would allow for human composting, also known as “recomposition” in Washington, local KIRO-TV reported.

    According to the bill, human remains “means the body of a deceased person, includes the body in any stage of decomposition, and includes postreduction human remains.”

    “There’s really only two options for when we die: cremation and burial,” said Katrina Spade, a human composting advocate and CEO of Recompose, the company hoping to become the go-to firm for human composting in Washington if it becomes legal.

    Neither of those options “felt particularly meaningful to me and I think if that’s the case, it’s true for others as well,” Spade said.

    Spade compared human composting to processes already in effect to recycle animal remains.

    “They’ve already done lots of research about the safe and effective ways to recycle animals back to the land on farms,” she said.

    “We proved recomposition was indeed safe and effective for humans as well,” Spade said, referring to a study conducted at Washington State University using the corpses of six human donors.

    According to Spade, human composting involves covering the dead body with natural materials, such as straw or wood chips, which leads to accelerated decomposition over the course of three to seven weeks.

    Families would have first dibs on the resulting “soil,” Spade said, and if they don’t want it, “we’ll partner with local conservation groups around the Puget Sound region so that that soil will be used to nourish the land here in the state.”

    I have always wondered how many gallons of bio-diesel you can wring out of a politician.

    Why not just bury the body?

    A lot of National Forest in Washington. Why not just drag the bodies out into the woods and leave them. Oh wait, I think some already do this.

    Funerals are prohibitively expensive!
    I made advanced arrangements for my body to be delivered to a body farm in Tennessee.
    It won't cost my family a cent.
    The way that I see it, all them little creatures will find nourishment from my body.
    My DNA will be carried on and passed on forever!
    That is all..

    Today would be a good time of a remake of the movie "Soilent Green" (sure it's spelled wrong) It was a classic I think. Now for me?, I'm thinking perhaps having myself "stuffed".

    You know these greenies are like watermelons, green on the outside and red on the inside. Nothing makes a watermelon prouder than good good pile of $@&+. I say if the greenies really want to force other people to go green they should set the example by eating their own feces. Recycle that!
