Recompose Community Fund

The Recompose Community Fund helps provide human composting to individuals who couldn’t otherwise afford the full price of the service.

Everyone Deserves a Green Funeral

Recompose is committed to bringing ecological death care to as many people as possible. This includes providing our services at a subsidized rate to individuals who could not otherwise afford to pay our full price. This includes:

  • Empathetic care and guidance from our Services team from the time of death through transformation into soil eight to twelve weeks later
  • Transportation from place of death to a Recompose facility within our service area
  • Sheltering of the body, if necessary, at our private, onsite cooled storage for up to four weeks
  • Death certificate filing (Washington State residents)
  • Obituary on the Recompose website
  • Transformation of the body into soil
  • Soil available for pickup or donation to conservation and restoration efforts, or a combination of both
  • Completed soil packaged for pick up or delivery in durable, multi-walled paper bags

The Community Fund is supported by 100% of the profits from the Recompose shop, speaking fees paid to Recompose staff, and contributions from members of our community.

Contribute to the Fund

We created the Recompose Shop as a way for individuals contribute to the Community Fund. Purchase gifts and gear to help spark conversations about human composting or skip the merch and become a fund sponsor instead. 100% of profits from all purchases go to our Community Fund. Please note that contributions to the Community Fund are not tax deductible.

More Information

Recompose considers applications for Community Fund support once a death has occurred. The Community Fund is only available to Washington State residents. Funds are limited so please contact us for information on current availability at

Land Acknowledgement
Recompose acknowledges we make our lives and livelihoods on the lands of the Coast Salish People, specifically the Duwamish People. We honor with gratitude the Duwamish People past and present, the land itself, and the Duwamish Tribe. Colonization is an active, persistent process. Indigenous communities continue to be resilient in protecting their ecological and cultural lifeways and deathways despite ongoing oppression. Recompose respects, shares, and supports this commitment to climate healing and environmental justice. Join Recompose in contributing to Real Rent Duwamish.
