WHAT WE DO
Recompose offers an alternative choice to cremation and conventional burial methods, with a process called “recomposition.” This natural process gently converts human remains into soil, so that we can nourish new life after we die.
Our modular system uses nature's principles to return our bodies to the earth, sequestering carbon and improving soil health. In fact, we've calculated carbon savings over a metric ton per person.
Recomposition allows us to give back to the earth that supports us all our lives.
We believe that death care is an essential part of life. In addition to creating a system that will gently return us to the earth, we encourage participation and strive to make the experience transparent and meaningful for everyone.
From having a home funeral to the care of a loved one's body after death, we encourage the participation of families and friends during this profound human event.
Recompose takes guidance from nature. At the heart of our model is a system that will gently return us to the earth after we die.
Recompose is a benefit corporation powered by people who believe in changing the current death care paradigm by offering a gentle, humane, and ecological model. All of us approach this work with energy, tenacity, and joy. To read bios of our team, click here.
