Luke Perry’s Daughter Reveals that He Wanted to be Buried in Special Eco-Friendly Mushroom Suit

Luke Perry’s legacy lives on and resonates far beyond the entertainment world as his daughter Sophie Perry, 18, revealed on the photo-sharing website and application, Instagram, that her father Luke was buried wrapped in a special mushroom suit, which is 100% eco-friendly, instead of a regular old casket after succumbing to a fatal stroke in March.

Before his sudden death, the Beverly Hills, 90210 actor discovered the suit, which returns a body to the ground without harming the environment and wished to be buried in it. Luke had chanced upon the mushroom burial suit as an eco-friendly burial option via mushrooms, and was very excited by the idea of it. He was laid to rest in this suit, which happened to be one of his final wishes. This is truly a beautiful option for this planet, and Sophie desired to share it with everybody.

As per, the firm designing this novel burial option, mushroom suits are priced at $1,500 each for a button-up material with a face cover and hood in 3 different sizes (large, medium, or small) and two color options (nude or black). The suit essentially speeds up the body decomposition process. It contains mushrooms and several other micro-organisms which work together, neutralize toxins in the body besides transferring nutrients to plant life. The biodegradable suit assures that Luke leaves a positive impact on this Earth.

Earlier, the teen announced the official opening of her first pre-school school named after her late father in Malawi, Africa. Over the past few months, Sophie and her two friends, Gabriela and Ruben, served as development instructors to help build pre-schools in rural communities in Malawi. Sophie was in Africa when news that her father Luke had suffered a stroke, broke in early March and she rushed back to be with him before he passed away, aged 52 on March 4, 2019. Luke and ex-wife Rachel “Minnie” Sharp shared daughter Sophie and son Jack, 21.
