Colorado Becomes the Second State to Allow Human Composting


You now have a third option for what to do with your body when you die in Colorado... Burial, cremation, or human composting.

Human composting essentially allows people to be made into soil when they die.

Gov. Jared Polis signed a bill into law Monday that makes Colorado the second state in the country, after Washington, to allow for human composting.

According to 9News:

It works by placing a body in a container with organic material so it will break down naturally. House Bill 21-006 prohibits the soil of multiple people to be combined without their permission, for the soil to be used to grow food for human consumption or for it to be sold.
