PNWguy Posted January 21, 2019 Share Posted January 21, 2019 http://mynorthwest.com/1245928/washington-legislature-human-composting/ In the ever increasing stamped to the left and Californication of the West coast, Washington state is considering a bill to allow the option of "composting" of human remains. Apparently, burial and cremation are too taxing on our planet's resources and you're now not eco-friendly if you want to honor your loved ones through traditional means... “Recomposition is natural and sustainable. It provides significant savings in carbon emissions, which is especially important because Washington State has the highest rate of cremation in the country at 76 percent,” Spade told the committee. “But cremation requires fossil fuels and has significant carbon dioxide emissions. Recomposition uses one-eighth the energy of cremation and saves over a metric ton of carbon dioxide per person who chooses it,” she added. “It’s important to share the incredible relief to her and her family and her friends to know that she could literally become soil. That in dying, she would not be forced to pollute the planet any further,” Morgan said. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
