Each Friday we highlight a number of important, and often bizarre stories from around the world that my team and I are closely following:
1. Washington State will allow human body composting
It doesn't get much greener than this.
Staking his presidential run on climate change, the Governor of Washington is set to sign a bill legalizing composting of deceased humans.
An especially high percentage of the deceased in Washington are cremated, so this alternative will cut down on carbon emissions.
Instead, family members can pay around $5,500 to turn their loved ones into compost, and use the composted-remains to plant a tree.
Hell, why not throw it right into the vegetable garden. Then your loved ones become a part of you.
Friendly reminder though, soylent green is people.
