Professional Services
Return Home is an end of life service that gently transforms the human body into soil after death. Our proprietary Terramation™ process is an innovative, environmentally-positive alternative to traditional death care. Terramation™ turns human remains into soil that supports new life and promotes healthy ecosystems. For centuries, conventional burial and cremation have been the only two choices available, and both are environmentally unsustainable. One cremation alone burns as much fuel as a roundtrip drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles, while in the United States we bury enough wood to build 24.5 million homes. Return Home’s process is a revolutionary, future-forward alternative that ensures that our last act on earth is to enrich and improve it.

Reasons to Invest

  • We built the first large-scale Terramation™ facility in the world and are prepared to rapidly expand as more states legalize the process. 
  • Our facility opened in June 2021, during which time we’ve served dozens of families. We’ve spent the last 3 years investing in and developing a scientific process and proprietary technology that allows us to transform human remains to soil in just 60 days. 
  • The traditional funeral market is a $20 billion industry that offers just two services, burial and cremation. Meanwhile, 52% of Americans nationwide express interest in green funeral options. 

Overview


Returning Remains to the Earth Through Terramation™

Return Home’s Terramation™ process gently transforms human remains into rich, fertile soil, allowing families an environmentally-positive way to return their loved ones back to the earth. 


Return Home has built the first large-scale Terramation™ facility in the world. Our Auburn facility is capable of terramating 74 bodies per month, or almost 900 decedents per year. Most importantly, we have a growing, passionate base of supporters who are actively integrating Terramation™ into their death planning, and spreading the word through their social networks. 




As Terramation™ becomes legalized in states across the country, Return Home is prepared to fill this new, expanding market. Based in Auburn just 20 minutes south of downtown Seattle, we are fully operational and preparing to roll out across the U.S. as more states pass legislation. 


The Opportunity


A $1B Industry 

The timing for Terramation™ could not be better. In May 2019, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee signed SB 5001, which allows for natural organic reduction as a disposition option for human remains. The new law came into effect on May 1, 2020. Washington is the first state to ratify natural organic reduction, and Oregon and Colorado followed suit just one year later. When Massachusetts, Illinois, California, and New York approve Terramation™, this new legislation can open up an enormous market, a 10% share of which would result in yearly revenues of over $350M, and a market value in the $1 billion range. 



The Problem


Cremation and Burial are Environmentally Unsustainable 

Put simply, most Americans do not have access to an earth-positive death care method. This means that most families must choose between burial and cremation, both of which are environmentally unsustainable. 


As of 2020, cremation and burial accounted for 56 and 37.9 percent of U.S. disposition, respectively. Cremation is growing at a very rapid clip and is expected to account for 69.5% of total U.S. dispositions by 2030. (Source)


Cremation is growing for a number of reasons. The first is that it is considerably cheaper than burial. Second and most troubling is the fact that many people perceive cremation to be kind to the earth. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. 


SourceSource


Excuse the bad pun, but the way we dispose of our dead is killing us



Return Home is leading the charge to provide funeral services that do not squander precious environmental resources.


The Return Home Solution - Terramation™!

We at Return Home believe that when we die, every one of us should have the right to return to the earth without poisoning it. 


Our proprietary Terramation™ process transforms human remains into soil in just 60 days. Our research indicates that we require just 10% of the energy normally used during the cremation process to complete one full Terramation™. Better yet, the soil produced is marvelously fertile and can be used to revitalize the earth. Cremated remains are essentially inert, charred carbon and offer no more nutritional value to the land than a bucketful of sand. 

The Market


Innovation in a Large Market

The funeral industry is a $20 billion market.  (Source) The business has not had a disposition method become mainstream since cremation was introduced in 1960. 


However, the desire for innovation is there, with 52% of adults saying they would be interested in green funeral options. (Source)


* Source


With legislation in multiple states recently approving Terramation™, a whole new market segment has suddenly opened up. Washington State, Oregon, and Colorado have all officially legalized Terramation™, and California,  New York, Illinois, Delaware, and Massachusetts are expected to follow in the next 12-24 months. Return Home is positioned to be the market leader in this expanding sector. 


* WA, CO, and OR have all ratified. MA, CA, NY, DE, and IL we believe should ratify in the next 12-24 months.

THE Solution


Technology to Implement Terramation™ on a Mass Scale

Return Home has built the first large-scale Terramation™ facility in the world, a hi-tech, 11,500 square foot, 74-vessel facility in Washington State, just 20 minutes south of Seattle. 


We spent 2.5 years developing our science and bespoke equipment. Our Terramation™ process is fully developed and capable of transforming human remains into soil in just 60 days. 


Return Home’s state-of-the-art facility is unlike anything currently on the market. Our HVAC system (nicknamed ‘Octopus’) moves oxygen through each of the 74 vessels and out of the facility, all the while constantly monitoring each vessel for temperature and airflow. This information is uploaded to the cloud and monitored by our operations team around the clock. 


Almost every piece of equipment in the facility is custom designed and fabricated. Every step in our process has been carefully thought through, and we’ve created a proprietary technical infrastructure capable of efficiently assisting us through every step of the Terramation™ process.


Our facility is fully operational, and we have already begun accepting decedents and returning soil back to families since June 2021. 


We’re More Than Just Technology

While we have focused intensively on our scientific process and technical capability, these are actually just a means to a much more important goal.


Visiting Return Home is the brightest thing many of our families experience during some of the darkest times of their lives.


What exactly does this mean?


  • TRANSPARENCY: Anyone can visit our facility and see what we do first-hand. We are in the business of winning hearts and minds. The more transparent we are, the more people can understand why Terramation™ is so important for the health of our planet.
  • DIGNITY: Every decedent is treated with love and respect. Our rule is simple - if this was our own mother, brother, grandmother, or son, what would we want for them? This means every decedent gets bathed, their hair washed, and are dressed in a compostable gown. It means that our team gently hits a gong when we close the lid on each vessel, and take time to speak the person’s name and wish them a safe journey.
  • INTEGRITY: We are here to explain every part of the process, and to ensure our families understand how much we value the fact that they trust us with their loved ones. We answer every question be it from a 7-year-old child, or an 85-year-old grandfather of 5.
  • Most importantly, we never forget that our primary purpose is to serve our families at their time of greatest need. The below video explains just how much this means both to us and the families we serve.




The Process


Phase 1 - Laying in: The body is placed in a sealed, environmentally controlled vessel and surrounded by an organic mixture composed of sawdust, straw, and alfalfa


Phase 2 - Terramation: The body quickly rises to between 145-160°F, and the microbes in the body become super-active, transforming the body to soil in just 30 days.


Phase 3 - Breathing: The soil is then placed in a separate container and allowed to cool and breathe for a second month.


Phase 4 - Life Grows on: After 60 days, the soil is ready to give back to the family! Any soil the family wishes to donate will be scattered at Return Home’s 8 acre greenbelt location.


The terramated remains are then ready to be delivered to the family to use as they wish. The soil can be used to plant a memorial garden, a grove of trees, or donated to nurture land in need of revitalization.



Competitive Landscape and Pricing

Our scientific process and proprietary technology allow us to serve the market on an unprecedented scale. 


 

While there are 3 other companies that offer Terramation™ services, none are yet capable of operating on scale, with a current capacity of 10, 5, and 2 vessels respectively.


Our business model is simple – we charge $4,950 for our Terramation™ service. This includes picking up the body, filing death certificates, transforming the body into soil, and scattering any additional soil on our 8-acre greenbelt location in Kent, WA. We also offer an optional $500 laying-in service.


Why Invest


Leading the Movement for Green Burials

We see this as a significant opportunity to lead the way in the first technological advance in the multi-billion funeral business in 60 years. We intend to be the leading provider of Terramation™ services in the United States. 


Washington, Oregon, and Colorado have already ratified Terramation™, and our goal is to move quickly into these markets over the next 24 months. We also expect a number of additional states to ratify in the next 1-2 years, and we will expand to those states as well.


Our Plan

2022 - Invest heavily in marketing, solidifying Return Home as a market leader in Terramation™


2023 - Build 2nd facility in Colorado or Oregon


2024 - Build 3 facilities 


2025 - Build 5 facilities


2026 - Build 10 facilities across the U.S.


By 2026, we have set a goal to be running 20 Terramation™ facilities across the country.


Our Team

Return Home’s team is truly what sets us apart. We are a group comprised of soil scientists, electrical engineers, funeral directors, compost experts, mechanical engineers, and construction specialists. 



Return Home ensures that our last act on this earth is to give back and create new life. We strive to be the brightest thing that happens to families during the darkest times in their lives. 


Join us as we provide a gentle, eco-conscious process that allows all of us to Return Home when we die.

Decorating Terramation Vessels

2 months ago


One of the most incredible parts of our life here at Return Home has been witnessing our families place pictures, letters, and even LED lights on the outside of their loved one's vessel. Our families also put a variety of items inside the vessel - flowers, plants, food, champagne (minus the bottle of course), even pieces of wedding cake.

A few weeks back we had the privilege of helping a group who lost Teihani, a young member of their family. We are incredibly grateful and fortunate to be able to show part of Teihani’s service here. Sometimes it’s hard to explain exactly why what we do is so powerful. Hopefully this video makes it all a bit clearer.

Our love to you all.

Return Home TikTok channel hits 30M views in 3 weeks

Hello StartEngine Community,


We are delighted to report that Return Home’s TikTok channel has achieved over 30M views over the last 3 weeks! Check us out on TikTok, username @returnhomenor.

 
As many of you know, we at Return Home believe in complete transparency. This means we explain exactly what we do, why we do it, and why we think it is important. To that end, our Services Director Brie launched our TikTok channel in September of last year. When we started we thought our channel would be an interesting experiment, a way to bring what we do out to the world. Things didn’t quite turn out as planned.

Our TikTok videos have been viewed over 30M times in the last 3 weeks alone. We’ve gained over 300,000 followers, our videos have been shared over 170,000 times, and have received over 18,000 comments. The vast majority were positive, with some wacky stuff mixed in. Here’s a random assortment for your viewing pleasure;

- “Death is my biggest fear but for some reason I find this so comforting. I’d much rather grieve a family member in this vs. than in a casket.”
- “ I love this so much, this is what I want for myself. I find the thought of my remains decomposing naturally and returning to the earth so peaceful”
- “One of the things I did with my son was give him a bath. It was a time that was specifically me and him and no-one was allowed in. I miss him."
- “Let it be known. Please braid my hair before you set me on fire. Viking funeral is my preference.”
- “My mother passed away in October and we cremated her ooh how I wish I would have known about this I would have loved to been able to do this for her.”
- “If ya don’t put jelly beans in my compost box I’m coming back to haunt people.”
- “Perfect timing. I was just thinking it’s been a while since I’d had an anxiety attack.”

Check out this clip, which has been viewed over 24M times these last couple weeks. Like we said, complete transparency.

Crowdfunding 101: Return Home is Live on StartEngine!

4 months ago

Dear Return Home Community,


The way we are dying is killing us. Modern burial and cremation are environmentally unsustainable, and we are in desperate need of an alternative. Return Home has come up with a solution. 


As most of you may know, Return Home transforms human remains into rich, fertile soil through a process we call Terramation™. We think of this as paying the gift of life forward, and giving meaning to a life well lived. In doing so, we are able to create a legacy of hope and healing by making our last act one that supports new life and promotes healthy ecosystems.. 


We are thrilled to announce that we are entering the next phase of growth by launching our campaign on StartEngine, one of the leading equity crowdfunding platforms in the industry. 


In a recent investor article, I covered everything you need to know about Regulation Crowdfunding and our current raise!


The big idea behind crowdfunding is that you can generate funding from many small investors rather than just a few big ones. This democratizes startup investing and allows virtually anyone to get involved in the process.


For more information, be sure to check out the full article!


Our team is in search of like-minded individuals who are as passionate about making a difference on this planet as we are. If this sounds like you, be sure to head over to our raise page and join our community of early shareholders today.


We are looking forward to changing the world with you.



Warmly,

Micah Truman
