Soul Bless Tree Forever / The New Funeral Way

Soul Bless Tree Forever
Soul Bless Tree Forever

The traditional cemetery occupaied too much space that the alive needs. And it isn’t environment-friendly.This new cemetery has combined the grave with tree planting. The tree is surrounded by the tombstones that looks like a ring, which symbolizes guarding and protecting the marriage and family.Cinerary casket has two kinds, degardable and non-degardable. QR code contains the information of location and life infors before death. It improves the rigorous situation that the dead and the alive are struggling for the limited space. What’s more, it combines tree planting and cultivation with the way of burial, which is ecological for our society.
