US: New York Become Sixth State To Allow So-Called ‘Human Composting’

New York has become the sixth US state to allow so-called human composting.

A person can now have their body turned into soil after their death, which can then be used in planting flowers, vegetables or trees.

The body is put in a closed vessel for around a month, along with woodchips and straw grass, before it gradually breaks down.

Washington became the first state to legalise it in 2019, followed by California, Colorado, Oregon and Vermont.
