Goodbye Earl

So, this chick is proposing a new funeral / body disposing concept for her thesis. She's calling it The Urban Death Project
The idea is to return your body to the earth by dumping it into a giant composting bin full of wood chips. The compost would then be redistributed to family & the community.
No expensive funeral tying up loads of resources & putting scary chemicals into the ground.
The idea of carrying the body up 2-3 flights of ramp gives me the impression that the designer has never been a pall bearer, tho…
Anyway, there's probably room to install something like this in the city owned Wesleyan Cemetery in Cincinnati.
