Who is your idea designed for and how does it reimagine the end-of-life experience?

Traditionally and generally , we buried the body in the earth. How about if we have many better ways to bury the body and mourm our love? Today I want to share with you some innovation design works that make death much more meaningful and beautiful. Not only good for individuals,it also have pasitive impact on the nature and society.

This kind of ideas are full of innovation and so inspiring. Not only improved the nature envinroment also saved massive land . Most improtantly , provide a such meaningful,sustainable and beautiful way to remember our friends or loved ones ,even for ourself .  Let people keep contributing and remaining to the world after they died.
