Urban Death Project wants to make funerals green by turning bodies into compost
Eco burials aren't a new concept — it's the more elaborate funerals involving expensive caskets that are the relatively new phenomenon in history — but more people are choosing to consciously avoid wasting resources in the age of climate change. Funeral directors such as the Hippensteel Funeral Service and Crematory in Indiana have been offering natural burials since 2012, with RFID tags to help loved ones locate the unmarked graves. Now the Urban Death Project has designed a new ceremony that respects the dead and celebrates the cycle of life by giving bodies back to the soil.
