Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? Because I don’t want to let you down in proposing alternate methods for what to do with your body upon death, let’s look into the suit lined with flesh-eating mushrooms!
Jae Rhim Lee is a 40 year old entrepreneur and artist who has created this suit (cost: $1,500), which is lined with mushrooms that are bred to feed on the toxins in our bodies. The nutrients are then distributed into the soil. What are her thoughts on death? “Why not just accept that we’re going to die and do less harm to the environment in the process?” Understandably, being more environmental friendly has become increasingly desired. Below you will find a link to a wonderful article which goes in-depth about the Infinity Burial Suit, but also compares the method to some other green burial methods which I previously blogged about, such as Bios Urns and The Capsula Mundi project.
