How does the cost of human composting compare to other options?

We strive to keep the price for human composting comparable to other death care options. According to the 2021 National Funeral Directors Association, the median cost of a funeral with cremation in 2021 in the United States was $6,970 and the median cost of a funeral with burial was $7,848.

The price of human composting at Recompose includes the transformation into soil, the opportunity to keep or donate soil, and a virtual ceremony.
