Eco Coffins & Caskets – Bamboo, Banana, Pandanus, Willow

100% Natural & Bio-Degradable

Bamboo – Materials grown and cropped in licensed plantations. NB Pandas do not eat the species of bamboo used in the production of these coffins.

Banana – These coffins/caskets are made from banana shaves. The dried shaves are coiled and woven, once the tree has produced fruit and has died back.

Pandanus – An environmentally friendly alternative to seagrass. The pananus palm is also known as wild pineapple.

Willow – Willow is a truly sustainable resource, in that it can grow up three meters a year and, once harvested, regenerate within 12 months. For centuries, the strength, beauty and practicality of willow have enhanced our homes and lives. Handed crafted, fast growing and easily replenished, willow is a wonderful option.
