Eco-friendly Caskets - The natural alternative
Hand woven coffins are a beautiful and environmentally friendly product. All of our environmentally coffins are completely natural and biodegradable.
Willow plants are grown sustainably being very easy to harvest and requiring no fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides.
The plants can replenish fertility in degraded and marginal soils and also provide habitat for birds and insects. Willow coffins are woven and therefore do not depend on toxic glues, varnish, plastics, or metals.
In the right soil conditions willow tends to decompose much more quickly than traditional materials such as MDF, hard woods and metal. Willow is a carbon neutral material and when burnt only gives off the same amount of carbon that it consumes within it’s lifetime.
Eco friendly caskets are a beautiful and natural solution to a difficult problem.
