History

From its germination, Recompose has been a progressive company. We draw upon the work of queer feminist practices of inclusion and equity and are committed to advocating and protecting for the rights of BIPOC, religious minorities, and undocumented people. Our ongoing success is thanks to the many collaborators and supporters who have spent years sharing in this mission.

Public Policy

In most U.S. states today, the only legal options for your body when you die are conventional burial, cremation, or donation of your body to science. In order to carry our mission forward, we are working hard to legalize natural organic reduction in additional states and, eventually, around the world. We will announce all future expansion in our newsletter.

Jobs

We are looking for people to help us build a sustainable, long-lasting company.

Open Positions

Finance and Operations Associate

Recompose is seeking a Finance and Operations Associate with an intrepid and positive attitude and good project management skills.

Franchising

Recompose is developing a franchise program so funeral homes, crematories, and other entrepreneurs can offer the Recompose service to their communities. We plan to use what we learn from opening our first location here in Seattle to inform decisions about future franchise locations.

If you are a business leader with startup capital and would like to be notified as these opportunities emerge, email info@recompose.life with your name, city, and state, and we will add you to our list. Please note it will likely be 2-3 years until we are ready to pursue franchising within the United States, with other countries coming after that. If you are interested in supporting Recompose in the meantime, joining Precompose is a great option.

Invest

We are committed to growing our company organically, carefully, and deliberately with strong and enduring financial results. We recently closed a $6.75M funding round led by heart-aligned investors to help us grow.

We are not currently accepting new investors, but may do so again in the future. If you are interested in learning more, sign up for our newsletter at the link below.

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.
