For Those Who Choose Cremation the Global Preservation Project Announces the Launch of New Division: My Living Reef

The Global Preservation Project an international nonprofit organization solely dedicated to ecological and cultural preservation announced today the launch of its new division; My Living Reef, a reef restoration division based out of San Diego, CA. This division is yet another example of Global Preservation Project’s dedication to eliminate the economic motivation for habitat destruction, by transforming non eco-friendly industries into eco-beneficial industries with higher returns.

San Deigo, CA, March 30, 2009 --( The Global Preservation Project preserves vital habitat through preserve ownership and promotes preservation through innovation, dialogue, and by transforming non eco-friendly industries into eco-beneficial industries.

Environmental issues such as global warming, pollution, deforestation, habitat destruction, and species extinction all a direct result of human impact. In the past people had little knowledge or regard of the impact industry or development had on our environment. Industry’s needs exceeded the need for preservation and this still holds true today. By creating industry around the idea that it is possible to be eco-beneficial and still make profits is a difficult task but one that My Living Reef has accomplished in one industry.

The Global Preservation Project has focused efforts on the evaluation and public awareness of the virtually unchallenged funeral industry and has found an innovative way to promote preservation, generate profits, and awareness, while most importantly creating vital habitat for hundreds of species of sea life. My Living Reef eliminates the economic motivation for the destruction of habitat by creating habitat through the restoration of our reefs.

My Living Reef is for those who have chosen cremation and wish for a memorial that is beautiful and unique. Our deceased deserve a living memorial that is permeated, dignified and is as full of life as the sea.

The staff at My Living Reef respectfully transforms ashes into an artificial reef. This living reef then becomes part of a mass of life and hope for the future of our planet. A Living Reef increases biodiversity, reduces species extinction rates, and is a gift that is full of the treasures and adventures of life itself. Not long after the reef is placed into the sea, life begins to move in and thrive. This scientifically designed marine friendly compound is then placed into a reef mold. When the compound cures, the mold is then removed, and what you have is a structure that is specifically designed to mimic the habitat of marine species that have been impacted by humans. The reef has holes that run through the entire reef with voids within the walls of the structure so that the targeted marine species has a place to call home.

The reef molds are made from recycled materials and the reef itself is made from environmentally friendly materials. Once the reef has had time to cure the reef is then loaded onto a non polluting sailboat and taken to its designated area for deployment. This area is located off the southern coast of San Diego called the Los Coronados Islands. Once on site the reef is lowered into its permeated resting place where it will begin serving our oceans and humanity. Because the reef has no economic motivation to remove or destroy it, it will never be harmed. Your loved one will remain in their resting place forever, unlike a cemetery.

If you’re looking for an ecological beneficial alternative to traditional memorials then My Living Reef may be an option for you. They are solely dedicated to the preservation of endangered habitat and offer this service to the public in an effort to restore ailing fish stocks in Southern California and Northern Baja waters.
