Transcend Launches Sustainable Pet Burial Kit 

It offers a meaningful and eco-conscious way to do right by your beloved companion.




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Transcend announces the launch of its new Tree Burial Kit for Pets ($350), offering a meaningful and eco-conscious way to do right by your beloved companion.

Founded by Matthew Kochmann, Transcend is offering a bold, carbon negative alternative to caskets and cremation for both humans and pets. They’re also the first to set up an accelerated impact-model to incentivize planning ahead. For every Tree Burial reserved, Transcend plants native trees in global reforestation projects via One Tree Planted. By committing to a Tree Burial in the future for yourself, a loved one or your pet, you can help rewild our planet and fight climate change in the here and now.

Unfortunately, more than 70% of pets are discarded at the vet’s office after being put down. Transcend’s Tree Burial Kit for Pets makes it easy to bury your pet under a native tree near your home, so you can always keep them close.

Transcend’s Tree Burial Kit for Pets includes:

  • Organic, biodegradable flax linen carrier used to both carry and bury your pet (currently available in Small (0-40 lbs) and Large (41-90 lbs) sizes)
  • Transcend’s unique blend of fungi-enriched soil that ensures a direct connection between body and tree
  • Step-by-step Tree Burial guide
  • 25 trees planted in your pet’s honor through Transcend’s partnership with One Tree Planted

The kit was designed in collaboration with Daniele De Iuliis, an industrial design expert who spearheaded 400-plus design and utility patents during his illustrious 27-year career at Apple. Daniele says,“The kit had to be practical, yet respectful to the process at hand – and at a time when you have a heavy heart. Choosing materials that are scientifically proven is part of the equation, but then you have to create something practical without looking too utilitarian. There has to be a reverence to emotion.”

Transcend offers free express shipping on all orders in the U.S., and recommends purchasing a kit to have on-hand as your pet ages. When the time comes, you’ll be able to bring the carrier with you to the vet for extra support.

About Transcend

Transcend is the first company dedicated to reforesting the world by planting people (and pets) as trees when they die. A bold, carbon negative alternative to caskets and cremation, Tree Burial creates life from death by returning people to the earth naturally so their biology can literally live on as a tree.

The company is also uniquely positioned to serve younger people who wouldn’t typically feel ready to start considering their funerals. Innovative financing plans and an accelerated-impact model allows them to move past fear into action, to positively affect the planet now. For every reserved Transcend Tree Burial, native trees are planted via One Tree Planted in global reforestation projects in the here and now.



NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
