Frequently Asked Questions

It is our mission to make the death care process as straightforward and as gentle as possible.

Can someone who donates their body still choose human composting?

In most instances, body donation and human composting are not compatible. Bodies donated to medical schools and research projects are usually embalmed to extend the time during which they can be used. Bodies that are embalmed cannot undergo human composting.
