Composting a human body will become legal 90 days after this year’s Colorado legislative session ends.
Governor Jared Polis signed a bill yesterday that makes Colorado just the second state in the U.S. to allow it as a post-death option.
Once the new law takes effect, funeral homes will be able to offer the chance to turn a person’s body into soil, similar to what Washington state has done. It takes about a month for a body to be broken down into soil.
