Some said that there were only two certainties in life - tax and death. This week in the New Inventors show in Australia, it featured an environmental friendly way of getting a burial.
The bio-pod, a lined shroud which combined with the patented handle system, can take you from funeral service to the grave without the need for an un-environmentally friendly coffin.
The inventor and some likeminded individuals even created the Natural Earth Burial Society of Australia with the vision to see the majority of Australian's embrace a more natural, eco-sensitive approach to death, funerals and memorialisation.
Why am I interested in it? I love the show, probably my sci-fi mind at play here. And I've written a few short stories featuring ghosts. I'll post one here tomorrow.
