We talk a lot about small steps we can take to better the planet while we're living on it. One thing that’s not often discussed, however, is the environmental impact of leaving it. Toxic chemicals leach into the soil from embalming, and cremation releases millions of tons of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. The solution? If you ask Katey Houston and Brie Smith of Return Home, the world's first large-scale terramation facility, that’s human composting. In this week’s episode, we dig into the environmental impact of dying and options that could transform the "deathcare" industry for the better.
