Over the weekend, Luke Perry's daughter Sophie said mushrooms hold an entirely new meaning for her because her father was laid to rest in an environmentally-friendly "mushroom burial suit." In an Instagram post, she said, quote, "Any explanation I give will not do justice to the genius that is the mushroom burial suit, look into them at Coeio.com, or just by googling 'mushroom burial suit.' "My dad discovered it, and he was more excited by this than I have ever seen him. He was buried in this suit, one of his final wishes. They're truly a beautiful thing for this beautiful planet."

Coeio sells its "Infinity Burial Suit" for $1,500. They say it's a, quote, "breakthrough in eco-friendly, green funeral options [and> returns [the> body to the earth without harming the environment." Last we checked, they were SOLD OUT. Naturally, Sophie didn't share a photo of her dad's mushroom suit,that would've been dark. She just included a random photo of some mushrooms from a trip to the California Redwoods last year.

--In December I went to San Francisco with two of my best friends. One of them, had never never been to California, so we went to show him the Redwoods. I took this picture while we were there, because i thought, “damn, those mushrooms are beautiful.” Now, mushrooms hold an entirely new meaning for me. Any explanation i give will not do justice to the genius that is the mushroom burial suit, but it is essentially an eco friendly burial option via mushrooms. All i can say is that you should all look into them at coeio.com or just by googling “mushroom burial suit” . My dad discovered it, and was more excited by this than I have ever seen him. He was buried in this suit, one of his final wishes. They are truly a beautiful thing for this beautiful planet, and I want to share it with all of you.
