Pet Funeral Home Turns ‘Pets Into Plants’ With Eco-Friendly Disposal Method

Published: February 17, 2022 at 12:47 PM Author: Penny Eims

A unique, Colombian pet funeral home is using a unique, eco-friendly method of disposal to turn pet remains into plants.

The Pleia home breaks down pet remains with microorganisms…the dirt that is created is then used to grow plants. But before the process begins, the funeral home takes an imprint of the pet’s paw for the grieving owners. They are then given a plant that is surrounded by the soil from their dearly departed pet.

The “pet soil” is also used to fertilize a grove of trees.

Fans of the process view this as a sort of “reincarnation” showing that life goes on, even after death.
