If you fancy something very different, there are a couple of contemporary, very environmentally friendly options out there, that mix style, design and traditional techniques.
By being innovative in their design, these alternative coffins are made from recycled paper and are exceptionally sturdy. They are 100% bio-degradable, and so ideally suited for natural burial sites, but can obviously be used for burial in traditional grounds and cremation as well.
Have a look – you may just like them.
