Washington State Now Allows the Composting of Bodies

22 May 2019 Wake-Up Crew


Eek! It sounds freaky at first, but apparently this “weird news” is good news for the environment. Lots of harmful gases are released when a body is cremated, and space is wasted with a non-biodegradable funeral; for those reasons, Washington state has now approved the composting of human remains. Apparently, with the right mix of wood chips and straw, a body can naturally decompose, and the resulting soil substance can be used in gardens! It’s odd and interesting–check out the full story here!
