Updated On 05 May, 2019 Published On

Almost two months after the death of American actor Luke Perry, his daughter Sophie Perry revealed her father's unconventional yet responsible choice of clothing for burial; an Eco-Friendly Mushroom Suit. 

The youngest child of the late Riverdale star took to Instagram on Friday, May 3, to share a photo of mushrooms explaining that the plant now has "an entirely new meaning" for her. As the caption for the photo, she wrote,

Any explanation i give will not do justice to the genius that is the mushroom burial suit, but it is essentially an eco friendly burial option via mushrooms. All i can say is that you should all look into them at coeio.com or just by googling ‘mushroom burial suit'

In December I went to San Francisco with two of my best friends. One of them, had never never been to California, so we went to show him the Redwoods. I took this picture while we were there, because i thought, “damn, those mushrooms are beautiful.” Now, mushrooms hold an entirely new meaning for me. Any explanation i give will not do justice to the genius that is the mushroom burial suit, but it is essentially an eco friendly burial option via mushrooms. All i can say is that you should all look into them at coeio.com or just by googling “mushroom burial suit” . My dad discovered it, and was more excited by this than I have ever seen him. He was buried in this suit, one of his final wishes. They are truly a beautiful thing for this beautiful planet, and I want to share it with all of you.

The 18 years old Sophie also went on to explain her father's concern regarding the environment and his eco-friendly decision. She said, 

My dad discovered it, and was more excited by this than I have ever seen him. He was buried in this suit, one of his final wishes. They are truly a beautiful thing for this beautiful planet, and I want to share it with all of you.

Sophie also replied to a fan's comment who asked whether or not a coffin is used if one is buried in the suite. She responded by saying,

You can skip the casket all together, if that is allowed by the place you are being buried. But its [sic] definitely not necessary, And if you do use a casket, it would have to be a biodegradable one.

Talking of Luke, he died on March 4, 2019, at the age of 59, following a massive stroke at his home in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles. He was buried on March 11, in his farm in Dickson, Tennessee.
