Transformative Burial

Institutions and services are ecologically transforming the burial process

Implications - Traditional burial methods are harmful to the environment, and so brands and institutions are seeking to re-frame this ritual so it's not only eco-friendly, but actually transforms urban areas into burial-powered oases. The urban planning approach is a response to the space limitations of traditional burial methods due to rising population and pollution rates. This transformative process speaks to the creativity with which institutions and brands must tackle issues related to climate change, in order to combat or influence larger forces impacting it.
