Green goodbyes: The growth of eco-burials Faced with expensive and garish funerals, many search for a more traditional resting place. On a beautiful sunny afternoon, Eva Moseley wanders through a tranquil wooded area in Massachusetts. It's a visit with a purpose - she is looking for the spot where she would like to be buried in a simple woodland ceremony. Ms Moseley plans to be laid to rest in a shallow grave, without a large headstone, in a simple wood and cardboard coffin.
Ecofriendly Cardboard - Eco Coffins are a new type of coffin that meet the desires of the 21st century society for environmentally sound, individual and non-wasteful funerals. Constructed and hand-finished using Rigid Honeycomb Cardboard (RHC) they are 90% recycled and 100% biodegradable. (By A & C Tadman)
