Return Home Is A Green Funeral Home Specializing in Human Composting

We're committed to providing an ecologically sound deathcare option.

Our vessel based Terramation system gently transforms human remains to living soil,
enriching the earth and conserving natural resources. Not only does Terramation avoid the environmental consequences of conventional burial and cremation, it actively promotes healthy soil ecology by:

Reducing environmental contamination

Terramation prevents pollutants associated with burial and cremation from entering our earth and atmosphere.

Preserving land

Because the soil created does not need to be placed in a graveyard, open land no longer needs to be used for burial.

Reducing Relative Carbon Emissions

Cremation emits almost 700 million pounds of CO2 annually in the U.S. alone. While the Terramation™ process emits some CO2, much of the carbon remains in the soil.
