Giving Back Until Death: The Mycelium Magic of Loop Biotech’s Living Coffin

In partnership with Loop Biotech

Instead of polluting our environment with dead materials, Loop Biotech is changing the system by growing living materials that enrich nature. Become part of nature's majestic loop of life and enrich the earth with the world's first living coffin, grown from mycelium.

In an innovative blend of sustainability and science, Loop Biotech’s mycelium-based “Living Coffin” presents a groundbreaking leap towards eco-friendly end-of-life care. This inventive approach not only encapsulates Loop Biotech’s commitment to environmental stewardship but also marks a significant step forward in how we consider our final contributions to the earth.

Harmony with Nature: Loop Biotech’s Mission

Founded on the principle of working in harmony with nature, Loop Biotech is pioneering the shift away from traditional, non-biodegradable burial methods towards a process that enriches rather than depletes our planet. “Our mission,” founder Bob Hendrikx passionately states, “is to move away from using dead materials and instead collaborate with living organisms.” This vision is brought to life through their organic caskets and urns, crafted from mycelium—the root structure of mushrooms—and upcycled hemp fibers.

It epitomizes Loop Biotech’s dedication to utilizing nature’s most efficient recyclers to foster a return to the earth that’s both meaningful and environmentally beneficial.

Innovative Caskets Grow in Just Seven Days

The process behind these innovative caskets and urns is as impressive as their ecological benefits. In merely seven days, mycelium and hemp fibers merge to create structures that are strong, sustainable, and completely compostable. When buried, they reactivate, engaging in a composting process alongside other microorganisms.

This natural decomposition ensures that the body is returned to the earth, enhancing soil health and biodiversity—a truly beautiful testament to the cycle of life.

Over a Thousand Choose Sustainable Goodbye

With over a thousand individuals in Europe already choosing this path for their final journey, Loop Biotech is addressing the pressing environmental issue of pollutants—like microplastics and heavy metals—from traditional burials seeping into our soil. Their living coffins offer a promising solution to this problem, ensuring that our last act on the planet contributes positively to its well-being.

Recognizing the potential for even greater impact, Loop Biotech has recently embarked on a crowdfunding campaign, inviting forward-thinking individuals to become part of this transformative movement. As shareholders, contributors can support the expansion of Loop Biotech’s sustainable burial options, helping to spread this eco-conscious alternative across the globe.
