Capsula Mundi: These Burial Pods Will Turn Your Loved Ones Into Trees

Capsula Mundi

Capsula MundiWhat happens after death? If there is one thing on which everyone agrees regardless of religious and philosophical considerations, it is about what happens to our bodies. Closing the loop and back to where we came from, That is the idea of this new method of burial.

The Capsula Mundi project  by Italian designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel has created a beautiful and environmentally friendly alternative, a fully biodegradable capsule that transforms the body of the deceased into a pool of nutrients, which will then nourish a tree. A new kind of Second Life.

Capsula MundiIn this kind of burial, the remains of dead persons are placed inside an egg-shaped capsule, made of 100% biodegradable starch. After being placed in the capsule in the fetal position, the deceased is buried and either a tree or a tree seed is planted above their pod. This capsule is made of vegetable starch and allows the body to provide the nutrients needed to grow a tree, when it decomposes. Instead of cutting down trees to build coffins, grows a tree from a pod. Forget gravestones and cemeteries, Instead of visiting cemeteries, relatives can visit "sacred forests."
