If you’ve ever seen the film “Soylent Green” you know what comes next. It’s disturbing that the left is so comfortable with this.

Creepy: Washington State University helps turns dead bodies into compost
Washington State University helped to launch a startup that will turn human remains into compost for a fee of $5,500.
Recompose, which seeks to replace traditional funeral care with “natural organic reduction,” will open for business in November 2020. CEO Katrina Spade launched the concept in 2014, which has since raised $6.7 million in investment capital and convinced the state of Washington to become the first to legalize human composting.
Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee signed the bill into law.
The organization promises investors that their money will go toward helping to “reimagine our relationship with death,” “create a framework for ritual,” and “create healthy soils,” as well as to reduce toxins in the environment and greenhouse gases.
Washington State University researcher Lynne Carpenter-Boggs helped the startup by researching the decomposition of six people, all of whom donated their bodies to the study.
Using bacteria to consume the remains, Carpenter-Boggs proved that the resulting material passed state and federal regulations for pathogens and metals in human remains.
Recompose communications manager Anna Swenson told Campus Reform that Carpenter-Boggs is also “a key advisor of Recompose and has been invaluable in the creation of the company.”
Washington State University boasts about its involvement with Recompose on a webpage titled “Waste Management Projects.” The university explains that the process sequences soil health and saves over a metric ton in carbon emissions per person.
