????In December I went to San Francisco with two of my best friends. One of them, had never never been to California, so we went to show him the Redwoods. I took this picture while we were there, because i thought, “damn, those mushrooms are beautiful.” Now, mushrooms hold an entirely new meaning for me. Any explanation i give will not do justice to the genius that is the mushroom burial suit, but it is essentially an eco friendly burial option via mushrooms. All i can say is that you should all look into them at coeio.com or just by googling “mushroom burial suit” . My dad discovered it, and was more excited by this than I have ever seen him. He was buried in this suit, one of his final wishes. They are truly a beautiful thing for this beautiful planet, and I want to share it with all of you.

“In December I went to San Francisco with two of my best friends. One of them, had never never been to California, so we went to show him the Redwoods. I took this picture while we were there, because i thought, ‘damn, those mushrooms are beautiful,'” Perry wrote.

The picture depicted mushrooms at the Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve in California.

“Now, mushrooms hold an entirely new meaning for me. Any explanation I give will not do justice to the genius that is the mushroom burial suit, but it is essentially an eco friendly burial option via mushrooms. All I can say is that you should all look into them at coeio.com or just by googling “mushroom burial suit,” she continued.

So what is a mushroom burial suit?

The company Coeio says its Infinity Burial Suit is a completely biodegradable burial garment. According to its website, the suit has a built-in “biomix,” made up of mushrooms and other microorganisms that help decompose the body, “neutralize toxins” and transfer nutrients to plant life.

“The end result of being buried in the Infinity Burial Suit, or any of Coeio’s products, is that bodies are transformed into vital nutrients that enrich the earth and foster new life,” a description on Coeio’s website reads.

Sophie has been in mourning since her father’s sudden death, which took place several days after he suffered a stroke. Prior to his death, the famed actor had several health scares, including the removal of precancerous growths.

The scares led the actor to significantly cut down on red meat and focus on eating healthier.

Sophie Perry, 18, shared a picture of her, her dog, and her father driving in a vehicle on March 23. Both of them are smiling as Sophie snapped the picture.

“Miss him a little extra today,” the teen wrote in a caption accompanying the Instagram post.
