Tour Recompose

Sign up here for an in-person or online tour of the world’s first human composting company.

Recompose Seattle

After nearly a decade of design, development, fundraising, and collaboration, Recompose started accepting bodies for human composting in December 2020.

Our 20,000 square foot facility located in Seattle carefully orchestrates the Recompose human composting process while offering a beautiful and intimate space for friends and family to gather and honor the person who has died.
