Johan Kauppi is a Swedish designer who is attempting to make graveyards greener with his unique gravestones. Dubbed 'Luohkkas,' these gravestones contain a hole big enough to plant a small tree in.

Johan Kauppi's 'Luohkkas' are made out of magnetite, making them light enough to be installed by any average joe and ultimately alleviating the need for professional installment. An eco-friendly headstone that encourages the planting of a tree sounds like a winner to me. Stats for Floral Gravestones Trending: Older & Mild
