Actor Luke Perry, known for his roles on “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Riverdale,” died in March. He was 52.

Luke Perry, star of “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Riverdale,” was buried in an eco-friendly mushroom suit, according to his daughter.

Sophie Perry shared a photo of mushrooms growing in the Redwoods forest in California on Instagram on Friday. She went on to explain that mushrooms now have a special meaning to her.

“Now, mushrooms hold an entirely new meaning for me. Any explanation i give will not do justice to the genius that is the mushroom burial suit, but it is essentially an eco friendly burial option via mushrooms,” she wrote.

“My dad discovered it, and was more excited by this than I have ever seen him. He was buried in this suit, one of his final wishes. They are truly a beautiful thing for this beautiful planet, and I want to share it with all of you.”

The 52-year-old actor died in March after suffering a major stroke.

Sophie Perry encouraged fans who are interesting in alternative burials to look into coeio.com or “just by googling ‘mushroom burial suit.’”

According to Coeio.com, the burial suit is “made up of mushrooms and other microorganisms that together do three things; aid in decomposition, work to neutralize toxins found in the body and transfer nutrients to plant life.”

USAToday.com reported that according to his death certificate, Luke Perry was buried in Tennessee. He owned a farm in Vanleer, Tenn., about 50 miles west of Nashville.

💋In December I went to San Francisco with two of my best friends. One of them, had never never been to California, so we went to show him the Redwoods. I took this picture while we were there, because i thought, “damn, those mushrooms are beautiful.” Now, mushrooms hold an entirely new meaning for me. Any explanation i give will not do justice to the genius that is the mushroom burial suit, but it is essentially an eco friendly burial option via mushrooms. All i can say is that you should all look into them at coeio.com or just by googling “mushroom burial suit” . My dad discovered it, and was more excited by this than I have ever seen him. He was buried in this suit, one of his final wishes. They are truly a beautiful thing for this beautiful planet, and I want to share it with all of you.
