While most researchers had their eyes on the plants and organisms above ground, recent discoveries have shown that Earth's most crucial creatures live underneath us.
Over 92% of all plant species rely on mycelium for their survival. Mycelium is known as nature’s biggest recycler and is the driving force in earth’s end-of-life cycle due to its ability to recycle dead organic matter and toxins into key plant food, allowing new life to flourish. What if we can join the end-of-life cycle of nature? The Living Coffin enables us to no longer pollute the earth, but actually to feed it.
