Heavearth / Sustainable Funeral

Heavearth
Heavearth

Heavearth is a future sustainable funeral company dedicated to exploring a future sustainable way of worship and preserving the essence of Chinese culture.

Heavearth uses the remains of the deceased to provide nutrients for the mycelium to make junzha as a tribute for worship, replacing the traditional polluting way of burning zhizha for worship. And eventually the bodies and junzha ashes will be returned to nature in the most environmentally friendly way.
