Luke Perry was always a fan of nature — and his family made sure to honor that after he passed away this year. According to a new Instagram post by the actor's daughter, Sophie Perry, her father was buried in the Infinity Burial Suit, a biodegradable mushroom burial suit that allows bodies to rejoin nature.

Perry passed away on March 4, 2019 at the age of 52, after suffering two strokes. At the time, multiple media outlets incorrectly reported how the actor, who was famous for starring in Beverly Hills, 90210 and Riverdale, was put to rest. Some outlets reported that he was cremated and his ashes were scattered on his Tennessee farm, and others reported that he was set to be buried at a Los Angeles cemetery.
