    Capsula Mundi - Eco friendly burial method. The body is put in a capsule in the fetal position and a tree is buried on top. If this Italian project catches on, our cemeteries will become forests.

    Capsula Mundi - Eco friendly burial method. Your dead body will be put in a capsule in the fetal position and a tree is buried on top. If this Italian project catches on our cemeteries will become forests. I like the idea of being cremated much better, but I'm sure the idea could work with those as well. What a cool idea!!

    Capsula Mundi is a container with an old perfect shape, just like an egg, made with modern material -starch plastic- in which the dead body is put in a fetal position. Capsula Mundi is planted like a seed in the soil, and on a tree is planted on top of it. The tree is chosen when the person is alive, relatives and friends look after it when death occurs. A cemetery will no longer be full of tombstones and will become a sacred forest. Cool idea if I must be buried.
