RE-BORN / Green concept for burial


We're looking at Post COVID in third world countries, such as Africa. Africans practice religious rites for funerals. However, the pandemic has left them unable to afford custom coffins and efficient sanitation. RE-BORN is a biodegradable coffin designed for disposal, which made from top agricultural waste in Africa, bagasse. Therefore, I believe that through the rapid repression in local factories, then give more accessibility for the relatives of the deceased to assemble their own, meantime through the application of sowing seeds to complete their hopes for the deceased loved ones, so to engage a memorable connection later on.
