Overview

The Urban Death Project is a new system for gently and sustainably disposing of the dead using the process of composting. The project is transforming an industry where wasteful, polluting disposal practices are the status quo. Envisioned as a place to honor the dead at a neighborhood scale, the Urban Death Project supports sustainable cities by engaging inhabitants in issues of soil heath, resource depletion, and climate change.
