Come back to life as a tree!

Other | Friday 26th August 2016 | Kat

Instead of taking something away from the universe when you die by killing that one final tree to make your coffin, why not give something back?

One project devised in Italy the Capsula Mundi, is suggesting the use of organic, biodegradable burial capsules in which a tree is planted above. What would in effect be the remains of the person would then grow into a tree. The end result would lead to a memorial forest... surely this is far better for the planet and the eye than a number of gravestones in lines?

With such deforestation happening right now leading to an uncertain future for our tree friends, this sounds like an incredible idea for the environment.

We're all going to go sometime, and we're thinking what a beautiful way to go!
