“Washington becomes the first state to legalize composting of humans”
“Washington has become the first state in the nation to pass a law allowing composting as an alternative to burial or cremation of human remains.
“Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bill Tuesday [May 21] legalizing human composting. The bill will go into effect in May next year.
“Currently in Washington, bodies can either be cremated or buried. The process of recomposition provides a third option that speeds up the process of turning dead bodies into soil, a practice colloquially known as ‘human composting,'” by Faith Karimi and Amir Vera, CNN.
