Return to the Earth

Recompose takes guidance from nature.  At the heart of our model is a system that will gently cycle us back to nature after we die.

Our Impact

Recompose's modular system uses nature's principles to return us to the earth, sequestering carbon and improving soil health. In fact, we've calculated carbon savings over over a metric ton per person. Recomposition allows us to give back to the earth that supports us all our lives.

 
 

At Our Core

We emulate nature, because nature is really, really good at death.

We believe everyone deserves choice when it comes to the end-of-life.

We hold transparency and participation dear, and work them into everything we do.
