  • This is a great idea but it honestly seems quite scary. Ik there's already a bunch of people who'd like this but if they could figure out a way to decorate it I think it could get closer to standard practice

  • There’s also options to be a tree which is even cheaper. They’re tree urns with biodegradable pots. Amazing idea though and mycelium seems to be the secret key to a lot of environmentally friendly products in the works these days. There was another one I forgot about but Stella McCartney has helped produce vegan leather made from mycelium.

  • Imagine in the future bragging about your relative's coffins like which mushroom and where the mushroom came from. But seriously thou, I love this idea but most prob gonna be cremated unless my small country has a large amt. Of people who desire to be buried back underground and return to nature. Cuz my country is really small its like a dot on the map so it's hard to see this happening in my country

  • I plan on being buried dressed in a black silk gown and this might be a great alternative to my dream casket which would be made of black wood and silk linings with pure cotton stuffing since Im gonna be delicious to the earth and I dont think I want to be embalmed. Otherwise, just put me into my eternal cubby and make sure Im properly fixed so my casket doesnt explode because I dont wanna be blowing up when Im dead.

  • Not an outright replacement though. Scaling this up would be so hard. Cultivating mushrooms for this purpose might also cause unforeseen ecological imbalance.

  • Netherlands has permafrost there so they have very limited space for burying new body. This makes sense for the country and climate he is in. That means a maximum of three to six months turn around before that plot could be used for another burial hypothetically. But for the survivors for the loved ones how would you mark that? That's the real problem is how would you honor the dead decades later when you're telling their great-grandchildren about them if there's no place designated just to remember that person? Would you put up some kind of stone pillar? Just starting from the bottom to the top list all of the names. I mean how would that even work? The way humans record those that came before them implies how they want to be recorded and that's how generational memory is kept. What happens when there's no longer a designated place for that? That brings up a lot of cultural shift and moral questions really. Cuz the burial place that you put your loved one is really for the living not just for the Dead

  • If the material ends up being styrofoam-like, could it theoretically be used to replace styrofoam as well? Because a biodegradable version of styrofoam would be insane to see in my lifetime.
