Luke Perry was laid to rest in an environmental-friendly “mushroom burial suit,” fulfilling “one of his final wishes,” his 18-year-old daughter Sophie said in a Friday Instagram post. “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,” Sophie Perry wrote in her caption. “All i can say is that you should all look into them at coeio.com or just by googling ‘mushroom burial suit.’” Sophie’s Instagram post included a picture she took last year of a mushroom patch in the Redwood Forest in Northern California. She said “mushrooms hold an entirely new meaning for me,” after her dad’s passing. Coeio, the company mentioned in her post, sells its “Infinity Burial Suit” for $1,500 on its website. The suit is a “breakthrough in eco-friendly, green funeral options,” according to its description, and “returns [the] body to the earth without harming the environment.” Perry died in March at the age of 52 after suffering a stroke at his home in Sherman Oaks, California.

?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.
