Death is a looming presence and a taboo topic in our society. This has led to a stagnation in the ways we view and deal with death planning and the dead themselves. A side-effect of this lack of innovation are the current environmentally unsound and unsustainable burial methods. Aside from the environmental impacts, this fear of talking about death results in poor planing. This lack of vigilance ultimately places a heavy burden onto grieving kin.
The Plan alleviates this burden. It promotes sustainable burial methods and helps a person develop their personal after-death plan. When the time comes, The Plan’s service handles the unpleasant details and leaves the loved ones to start their recovery without the added stress.
