The Biodegradable Burial Pod That Turns Your Body Into A Tree



The Biodegradable Burial Pod That Turns Your Body Into A Tree
(more accurately, provides fertilizer for a tree/sapling planted above it)

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/03/world/eco-solutions-capsula-mundi/index.html

Summary: the biodegradable plastic shell breaks down and the remains provide nutrients to a sapling planted right above it.

My summary is the gist of this article; as usual, read it if you wish to become informed about its concept, etc.,.

Links in the article expand the concept, to include a uTube vid on the designers website.

Apparently different "style" pods have been designed (at least looking at the outside of one), and the one in my embedded image is just one example

This uTube URL (1:23 run time) illustrates the details; it more clearly illustrates that the pod is buried below ground and along with other pods ideally creates a forest (and apparently one without tombstones in the vid).

Not unlike burials of old, Often the bodies were left where they were to feed the wildlife and provide food for the worms. The only difference is that this is "ecologically friendly" IOW P.C.

Nice idea for ashes:)

Not sure about bodies in eggs.
Seeing it planted knowing there's a body in there feels creepy:(
