Natural, chemical-free alternative to Alkaline Hydrolysis

Earth provides a natural, less water-intensive alternative to Alkaline Hydrolysis.

Return to earth

Return to nature

We're specialists in soil transformation, a natural, chemical-free alternative to Alkaline Hydrolysis. 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 process is natural, uses 90% less water than Alkaline Hydrolysis, and 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.
