Living Coffin

Here to enrich nature.

The Living Coffin embodies living design in manufacturing, fostering biodiversity and nurturing the Earth. A testament to creating products that give back to nature, it's a model for a sustainable future.

A Sustainable Legacy for Future Generations

The Living Coffin by Loop Biotech is an innovative, sustainable burial solution that utilizes mushrooms and organic materials to redefine the end-of-life experience. Made from mycelium (the vegetative part of mushrooms) and upcycled hemp fiber, it is biodegradable and enriches the soil during decomposition. This unique product addresses environmental concerns associated with traditional burial practices by reducing waste, absorbing CO2, and enhancing biodiversity. The Living Coffin fosters a harmonious relationship between humans and nature, promoting sustainability and regenerative design. It has formed valuable partnerships with funeral homes in Europe, received recognition through several awards, and chosen by more than 500+ individuals seeking an eco-conscious final resting option. By using the Living Coffin, we leave a legacy of love for future generations, nurturing the Earth's fertility and promoting a greener, more sustainable world.
