Did you Know? A Company turns dead bodies into reefs
For those who fantasise about being buried at sea, Eternal Reefs has devised a novel solution. It combines a person's cremated remains with concrete to form a "pearl" onto which loved ones can etch personal messages, handprints, or (eco-friendly) mementos. The pearl is then encased in a "reef ball" and dropped into the sea, where it provides a new habitat for fish and other sea life, promoting a healthy ecosystem. At work, the circle of life!
