Let's start with what “repackage” is. This is a service that offers a new startup Recompose, namely, to interrupt the body. But not in the usual sense - to bury, namely, to turn the corpse into the ground. Through the process of "natural organic decay," human remains will be transformed into soil. Repackaging will be offered as an alternative to cremation and conventional burial. How much money do you think this startup has already collected?
What does Recompose startup do?
Recompose is a company founded by KatrinaSpade in order to offer the public a "natural organic decay." In the future, the startup intends to distribute its services wherever, hum, people are buried. Well, that is, generally everywhere. Because for so many deaths - this is particularly a spiritual event.
"The transformation of man into soil occursinside our reusable, hexagonal receptacle vessels. When the process is over, families will be able to take home some of the created soil, and they will remind us on the spot that life is interconnected, ”the startup website says.
For Recompose, people and the environment are put above profits.
According to the creators, the current funerarypractitioners are harmful to the environment and, in some cases, are not psychologically satisfactory. Partially, these practices are conducted due to historical agreement, partly due to funeral practices. Each year, 2.7 million people die in the United States, most of whom are buried in an ordinary cemetery or cremated, emitting carbon dioxide and derivatives into the atmosphere. These methods take valuable urban land, pollute the soil and air, contribute to climate deterioration.
How does a repackage change this all? Transforming human remains into soil, the startup plans to minimize waste, avoid contamination of groundwater with embalming fluid, and prevent carbon dioxide emissions from cremation, production of caskets, tombstones and monuments.
By allowing organic processes to turn the bodies of loved ones and loved ones (who have died, of course) into useful fertilizers for the soil, we could strengthen our relationship with natural cycles and enrich the earth.
