Tribute Funeral Services is proud to add to its Natural Eco-Friendly Funeral Services, Hand Woven Willow and Wicker Coffins.
The Jude and Cradle are made from all Natural Willow and Seagrass. Hand woven willow coffins are a beautiful and environmentally friendly product. Sustainably raised from a renewable resource and then hand woven without glues or metals.
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. They also act as windbreaks, stabilise soil and can combat river and coastal erosion. It also provides badly needed seasonal income for families in farming communities. Willow coffins are among the most environmentally friendly coffins available. We believe that our coffins are the ultimate in environmental recycling as willow is a highly renewable crop harvested each year which involves minimal processing. It can degrade rapidly in the soil and helps to lock carbon emissions into its willow stems.
Willow Caskets are completely natural and biodegradable. They break down in 6 months to 2 years depending on soil conditions. Willow coffins are woven and therefore do not depend on toxic glues, varnish, plastics, or metals.
Their colours are the natural plant dyes in the pigmentation. This means that colour tone may vary from batch to batch.
The addition of these Coffins, add to the already extensive range of Environmentally and Sustainable Friendly Cardboard and Solid Timber Coffins and Caskets. Contact our Caring and Friendly Staff for information of how we can customise the Funeral Service for your loved one.
