California has legalized the use of human remains for composting.
Assemblymember Cristina Garcia, one of the bill’s architects and its author, implied she might go for the method herself.
“Trees are important carbon breaks for the environment,” Garcia said. “They are the best filters for air quality and if more people participate in organic reduction and tree-planting, we can help with California’s carbon footprint. I look forward to continuing my legacy to fight for clean air by using my reduced remains to plant a tree.”
