“Let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life,
their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows,
plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn
that death is sting-less indeed, and as beautiful as life,
and that the grave has no victory, for it never fights.”

John Muir, Thousand Mile Walk to the Gulf

What is TransitionCoin?

What is TransitionCoin?

TransitionCoin is a utility token and smart contract on top of the Ethereum blockchain created as an alternative method to meet the increasing demand for green burial services.

Transition Green Burials LLC will offer natural burials at any time in the future for 4,000 TransitionCoins. A green burial includes transportation of the body locally or from a nearby international airport, the burial area and its maintenance, the cost to open and close the grave, and a natural marker.

Tackling pollution and high costs

The conventional burial process is a major source of pollution. Not only are embalming fluids and caskets leaking toxins into the ground, but cremation disperses toxins into the air.

If the environmental concerns were not bad enough, the cost of conventional funerals and burials has been increasing rapidly and can often leave surviving family members with massive debts. If let unprepared, families face daunting decisions around a funeral process that can cost well over $25,000.

What is a Green Burial?

What is a Green Burial?

By providing a time-honored burial that is both cost-effective and nurturing to the earth, green burials are an obvious solution to all of the issues posed by the modern funeral industry.

Many people have already chosen green burials for their funerals and the demand for this type of burial is rapidly rising. Although it is anticipated that the cost of green burials will stay well below the costs of conventional or “traditional” funerals, the costs of green burials will eventually rise. Currently, the cost of a green burial is around $5,000.
