Those Wacky People in the Left Hand Corner Have Done it Again!

The Pacific Northwest is certainly a hotbed of radical ideas and dreams of utopia (fueled no doubt by strong coffee). Start-ups do well here, cohousing is thriving, organic anything is top of mind, hence when the Urban Death Project idea was hatched here were we surprised? Not at all. We lined up to participate and pledged our money to make it so.

Take a look at the video here and learn the polluting facts of more traditional methods of disposing of the dead and you might want to sign on too. Architect Katrina Spade is the founder and I am thrilled to report that this AM the Kickstarter campaign  has been fully funded. Now the harder work will begin and the interesting process to see who will sign up to participate and if it will get any traction elsewhere in the less left leaning parts of our great country.

I applaud Ms Spade for her vision and determination, it is going to be fun to watch this project take flight.
