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.

Public Policy

Recompose’s process, known as natural organic reduction or human composting, is currently legal in Washington, Colorado, and Oregon. We are working hard to legalize our process in additional states and, eventually, around the world. We will announce all future states in our newsletter.


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.

Working at Recompose requires:

  • Commitment to working toward and advocating for climate healing, soil health, and environmental justice.
  • Commitment to working at a progressive company that explicitly works to be anti-racist. Recompose is committed to advocating for and protecting the rights of BIPOC, religious minorities, and undocumented people.
  • Commitment to working at a progressive company that explicitly engages 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.

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.
