The Evergreen state has become even more, uh, evergreen. Washington passed a law in 2019 allowing people to turn themselves into compost after death. This month, the first officially licensed human composting company has opened its doors to help citizens meet their maker in a more environmentally friendly manner.

I hope this is an option when it is my time.

First choice: organ donation, rest of the cadaver goes to science.

Second choice: organ donation, compost the cadaver

My wife detests my desire to have my body used for cadaver/science study. She's fine with organ harvesting (doubt anything I'll leave behind will be useful, but who knows?)

Ever see those places where they use bodies for forensic purposes?
They leave bodies in various conditions and make measurements of decomposition, etc? Kind of grisly, but it does help investigators figure out time of death, etc.

A neat idea, but I really don't care what happens to my body after I die. Once I'm dead, it will be just another broken down biological machine. My surviving family is welcome to do with it as they please.

I did agree to be an organ donor if there is anything left useful, but that's about it.

I actually prefer the Body Farm in Texas, but my kids said they won't honor that. Although, it doesn't have to be Texas. That's just the only one i know about.

I want my body to be preserved and displayed in the position of me taking a human waste on Trump Tower...

Since that's never happening, I really have not given much thought to what I want done to my body.
