Washington state legislature on Friday passed a bill that would allow residents to participate in “natural organic reduction” of human remnants, partly referring to research saying that carefully composted human remains can be safe for use in a household garden, reports.
The Seattle Times reported that the Democratic Government Jay Insle’s office on Friday said he did not review the final legislation. Inslee – who runs the president – has been active on Twitter since the State Senate and House of Representatives passed the bill 5001, but did not mention the bill in any posts. The bill passed easily and had bipartisan support.
The report pointed out that the action has been going on for several years. It was an attempt that involved six backers who agreed on organic reduction. The results were positive and “the earth smelled like earth and nothing else,” the report says.
Troy Hottle, a colleague of the US Environmental Protection Agency, told the paper that the method is “near the natural process of disintegration [as] you would assume a body would undergo before we had an industrialized society.”
NBC news report last year said the procedure could cost $ 5,500.
