The Urban Death Project is a new system that utilizes the natural process of decomposition to safely and gently turn our deceased into soil. The project is creating a meaningful, equitable, and ecological alternative to existing options for the care of the dead.
Current Westernized methods of burial and cremation are damaging to the environment, burning fossil fuels and wasting resources. Embalming is a superficial road to longevity, preserving the deceased only in appearance for a short while and nothing more, and fills our grounds with carcinogenic embalming fluids. The Urban Death Project proposes a new method that puts our physical remains to a great use: creating new life.
