Who We Are

Recompose is a public benefit corporation powered by people who believe in changing the current death care paradigm. We approach this work with energy, tenacity, and joy.

From its germination, Recompose has been a progressive company. Our ongoing success is thanks to the many collaborators and supporters who have spent years sharing in this mission.

Legislative Advocacy

To begin changing the death care paradigm, we first had to change the law. The Recompose process, known as natural organic reduction or human composting, is now legal in seven states. We’re working hard to legalize it in more states and, eventually, around the world. Learn more about the legalization process and how to get involved.

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

Every person we hire will have the following qualities:

  • Empathy and interpersonal sensitivity – great listening skills.
  • Emotional generosity – ability and willingness to offer comfort and support to people in distress, whether clients or team members.
  • Resilience – ability to manage one’s own emotions, demonstrate self-control under pressure, and practice self-care.
  • Flexibility – ability to adapt to new situations and to change focus unexpectedly.

Recompose is part of a global movement of organizations working to:

  • Advocate for climate healing, soil health, and environmental justice.
  • Be anti-racist. Recompose is committed to advocating for and protecting the rights of BIPOC, religious minorities, and undocumented people.
  • Engage with the work of queer feminist practices of inclusion and equity. Recompose is committed to advocating for and protecting the rights of women, transgender people, and gender nonconforming people.
