We offer a complete line of environmentally friendly caskets and urns.

Caskets 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.

Water or earth biodegradable urns can be chosen for burial or scattering. We offer urns in a wide range of materials, including handmade paper, sand and gelatin, cornstarch, bamboo, and recycled paper. Many come in a variety of colors and styles, allowing the utmost in personal choice and personalization. 

Water Biodegradable Urns are designed specifically for that purpose and will float briefly and sink gracefully. They are sustainably produced in a variety of natural materials, including recycled paper, rock salt, gelatin and sand. Although they were designed for water burial, all of these urns can also be used for earth burial. 

Earth Biodegradable Urns are designed to degrade over time, depending on the material chosen and environmental conditions. Generally, the more moisture in the soil, the quicker the urn will biodegrade, although several other factors including burial depth and general health of the soil must also be considered. Many of these urns can also be used for either temporary or long-term storage of cremated remains. Please read the individual product details to help you decide which urn will meet your needs.
