What if our last breath could be one of giving back? The answer to this question is Afterlife: a new wearable material that is completely biodegradable. It is created from waste products of the food industry, for example, orange juice and spinach, and is infused with flower seeds. As we pass on, the earth can still use our body to generate more life. By covering our body with the Afterlife clothing, which includes seeds, we turn an end into a beginning, creating a greater purpose after death. Shifting the definition of a cemetery into something less grim, for example, a forest or park, where the ones we loved, and their offspring, can walk, play and enjoy.
