Ever since I saw the scene from Agents of SHIELD where Fitz and Simmons discussed returning to the ocean when you die, I've felt like that's what I want to do, too. I don't like the idea of coffins, and while I thought having myself cremated and poured into the ocean, which is one of the things I love most on Earth anyway, would be nice, I couldn't help but think about the importance of our bodies naturally decaying the way they're meant to do. Yeah, it's morbid, but it's true, although we could argue that many of us have too much junk in our bodies to want to give it back to nature!
So when I read about human composting, I thought... well, yes. That makes so much sense to me. Washington will be the first state to allow it and the first site is scheduled to open soon. The process uses a fraction of the energy used on cremation and it returns the body to soil in the most eco-friendly way. I really hope the trend spreads to more states.
What about you? What do you think of human composting? Would you opt for this service?
