Feed the tree

This is just about the coolest burial method I've seen. The body is placed in a biodegradable "coccoon", in the fetal position, and buried. A tree is planted over the coccoon as a living memorial. One is reminded of the Peruvian mummies, placed in the fetal position within woven reed sacks. Given the proper conditions, the Italian "capsul mundi" could result in similar mummies for future generations to find.

Annoyingly, the page loads about as slowly as one of their trees grows.
