Washington state could become the first state to allow human remains to be used as compost under new plans.

Lawmakers in the state passed a bill on Friday last week that would allow residents to have their remains disposed of using ‘natural organic reduction’ after their death.

The bill cites research which claims human remains would be safe for use in residential gardens and would not smell like anything other than soil.

Proponents of the bill claim it comes amid a greater demand for environmentally friendly funerals which offer an alternative to traditional burials or cremations.

Katrina Spade, founder of Recompose, plans to use wood chips, alfalfa and straw to turn bodies into top soil and says the bill brings us one step closer to ‘a future where every human death helps create healthy soil and heal the planet’.

‘It is an understandable tendency to limit the amount of time we spend contemplating our after-death choices, but environmental realities are pressing us to develop alternatives to chemical embalming, carbon-generating cremation and the massive land use requirements of traditional cemeteries,’ Ms Spade told the Telegraph.

After it was passed on Friday the bill has arrived on the desk of presidential candidate and Washington’s governer Jay Inslee.
