Carbon neutral funerals
Earth gently transforms bodies into nutrient-rich soil. Make arrangements online, over the phone, or in-person.
Return to nature
We’re specialists in soil transformation, an environmentally-friendly alternative to burial and cremation, which is sometimes referred to as human composting. Over a 45-day process, we gently transform a body into nutrient-rich soil.
Families choose how much soil they’d like returned – to scatter or plant – and the remainder is sent to our Olympic Peninsula conservation site for land restoration projects.
The soil becomes a means to return nutrients from our bodies to the natural world. In turn, we restore forests, sequester carbon, and revitalize challenged ecosystems.
Learn more about soil transformation, the process, and the environmental benefits.
The Earth difference
Our process is net carbon neutral versus the 535 lbs of CO2 produced by the average cremation (equivalent to a 600+ mile car journey).
Make arrangements in less than 15 minutes, manage everything online with the Earth Portal, and share obituaries with family and friends.
Our care team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We update you at each stage of the process via email and our online Portal.
We own and operate the world’s most advanced soil transformation facility. Designed in conjunction with a leading sustainable architect, our facility uses 100% renewable energy and offers a beautiful send-off for a life well lived.Tour our facility online

Every interaction with Earth and all the wonderful people who provide this valuable service has been positive, respectful, and individualized to our needs. We feel assured that this all important final step is in excellent hands, and our family can be confident that our final resting place will be part of both restoration and timeless beauty on the Olympic peninsula.King County, WA
So much space is being used to bury people in the traditional way in caskets. The idea of being cremated simply did not appeal to me at all. When I heard that Earth was a totally different alternative and one that is the best choice for our environment I knew immediately it was what I was searching for. I have felt nothing but peace knowing I have chosen the right path for myself and, at the same time, helping our earth continue to survive for future generations to come.Lewis County, WA
