Luke Perry, gone too soon, but he's found a way to be with all of us before he did. On Friday, his daughter Sophie Perry revealed how Luke Perry did not have a traditional burial. According to People, she revealed in a post on Instagram that her late father was buried in a special eco-friendly mushroom suit instead of a traditional casket after he died from a massive stroke in March. She revealed that he discovered the suit which “returns your body to the earth without harming the environment,” and requested that he be buried in it when the time came.
In December I went to San Francisco with two of my best friends. One of them had never ever 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. According to Coeio.com, the company that designs the special burial option, mushroom suits cost $1,500 each and include a button-up fabric with a hood and face cover.
It's called the infinity burial suit, and it cleanses the body and soil of toxins that would otherwise seep into the environment. It delivers nutrients from the body to surrounding plant roots efficiently and is also said to restart life around the body much faster than normal. Not just does it leave the environment better, the suit is made of all natural, biodegradable material and they use no harsh chemicals, preservatives, or processing.
Along with reuniting the body with the earth and the ongoing cycle of life, they also reduce your environmental impact via our patent-pending technology. We plant 2 trees for every suit or shroud bought, compost our scraps, and our manufacturers are converting to using all renewable energy. What do their products contain? Our products contain a mixture of mushrooms and other biological material that provide three benefits: help the body return to the earth, clean toxins in the body and soil, and deliver nutrients to plants.
Mushrooms break down material by emitting enzymes and have the potential to consume a large variety of food sources. Some mushrooms create relationships with and deliver nutrients to plant roots. The process by which mushrooms remove or eliminate toxins from the environment is called Mycoremediation. Mushrooms break down toxins in two ways. With organic toxins, mushrooms break down molecular bonds, thus neutralizing toxins or breaking the toxins down.
Several people thanked Sophie for the information she's just provided them with. One person said: Thank you for sharing. Your Dad really cared and instilled it in his children. Good luck with all your journeys ahead. I love that your mama is with you. I am a mom and being with my children when they are doing good things means the world to me. Another said: What a blessing to have known him personally and have had him as a dad. Thanks for sharing this. It somehow made me feel a little better. I do believe he will live on in many different ways and the world is a lot better place from him having been here. Sending love and well wishes on your journey forward.
