Bios brings a new meaning to the circle of life. Bios is a biodegradable urn, filled with soil and a seed. After ashes are poured in and the urn is buried, a tree will grow. By creating BiosCommunity, people can always be with their loved ones by registering their tree to GoogleEarth. The mobile app determines the coordinates of the tree and registers it to the website where the memorial can be visited online. BiosParks acts as both a harmonious burial ground and park where the trees will be protected. This initiative will eliminate the waste from traditional funerals, create more oxygen, build natural habitats and protect nature in a world that will soon be filled with urban developments.
