We offer mushroom suit burial services to your loved ones.



If you would like to plan an ecologically conscious funeral for someone who has recently departed, then it is worth considering the environmental benefits of a mushroom suit burial. So-called mushroom suits are not, in fact, made from derivatives of certain fungi. Instead, with a mushroom suit burial, the deceased body will be respectfully and carefully dressed in pure cotton clothing, a natural material that will decompose quite naturally. The difference with a mushroom suit is that mushroom spores will have been sewn into the suit so that they begin to grow once the body has been buried.

The idea of replacing a traditional casket or lacquered coffin with an ecological alternative isn’t so much that the latter will biodegrade. Both will do so. However, conventional clothing with man-made fibres and most caskets take much longer to biodegrade in the soil than natural alternatives. With a mushroom suit, the spores will begin to grow as soon as the body is laid to rest, thereby speeding up the natural process of decomposition. What’s more, any toxins that may be present in the body will be turned into harmless enzymes as the mushrooms begin to grow. This means that they won’t pass into the soil and potentially contaminate any nearby watercourses, for example.

At Newrest Funerals, we have a wealth of experience to draw upon with mushroom suit burials including where to source them from and how it is best to store them prior to the burial service itself. We can help you choose funeral directors who can manage this sort of burial and even assist with tracking down a suitable location for the interment itself. Our caring team is ready to ask any further questions you may have about mushroom suit burials.
