Eco-Friendly Caskets are crafted by skilled weavers as a
small cottage industry, not in factories. They are created from sustainable
materials such as fast-growing willow, seagrass and bamboo which don’t require
heavy machinery for harvesting, giving them a small carbon footprint. Casket
linings are made from unbleached natural cotton.
Woven/wicker caskets in willow, seagrass or bamboo are
available in adult and infant sizes. Each casket is suitable for viewing and
services, followed by burial or cremation. These caskets can be used as part of
a traditional funeral or a greener funeral ritual.
While beautifully handcrafted, they are also sturdy, with
each adult casket tested to carry up to 350 lbs. A rigid eco-friendly base
provides added strength.
