According to Sophie, the daughter of the late Beverly Hills 90210 actor Luke Perry, her father was buried in an eco-friendly “mushroom suit.” She says that being buried in the suit rather than a traditional casket was one of the star’s last wishes.
As Sophie explains, when Perry discovered the suits, he “was more excited by this than I have ever seen him.” The burial suits are made by Coeio, a “green burial company,” according to its website. The eco-friendly suits, which cost $1,500, help to “return your body to the earth without harming the environment,” the company claims. According to People magazine, the suits have “built-in mushrooms and other microorganisms” that help to speed up the body’s decomposition process.
