Life After Death – Turning Love Ones into Trees
Environmentally Friendly: something that does not harm the environment
The company Recompose has a unique vision of life after death. They will turn your body into nutrient-rich soil to grow trees and rebuild forests. This end-of-life choice is known as human composting. The company first places the body in a container with plant materials. It is gradually transformed into soil over 6-8 weeks.
Human composting is seen as a more environmentally friendly choice. It uses less space than traditional burials and reduces our carbon footprint compared to cremation.
The company describes the final stage of human composting as a way to give back to the Earth. “The soil created returns the nutrients from our bodies to the natural world. It restores forests, sequesters carbon, and nourishes new life.”
