Environmentally Friendly & Biodegradable Coffins

Environmentally friendly coffins and caskets are a great way to ensure we protect the environment, even at the end of our lives. We at Victoria Funerals realise the importance of protecting nature, and hence we offer biodegradable & eco friendly coffins that you can use to bid your loved one’s farewell. Our collection includes the following biodegradable coffins:

The Artisan

The Artisan is an innovatively designed casket manufactured in Australia by the Amalgamated Casket Company. These caskets are environmentally friendly and are made using high-quality biodegradable timber. These biodegradable coffins are coated with a rich oil that lends it a warm, natural look. For natural cushioning, the casket features a wool fleece mattress and pillow. The fully removable lid and lower sides give you easy access to the interiors of the casket.

Features of the Artisan

  • Innovative design
  • Wool fleece mattress and pillow
  • Biodegradable timber
  • Completely removable lid and lower sides

The Enviro

The Enviro coffins and caskets are manufactured by the Amalgamated Casket Company in Australia. The use of plantation grown radiata pine in the making of the coffin and casket is what makes them environmentally friendly products.

Free from lacquer, paint and stain, the Enviro range is left raw. It uses EO water-based adhesive in its manufacturing and is lined with unbleached calico. The lining at the base is made using non-food vegetable extracts that make the coffin and casket compostable products. To prevent the use of plastic or metal thumbscrews, the lid uses four simple wooden dowels and the metal and plastic handles are replaced with six sisal rope handles.

The Enviro is suitable for burial as well as cremation and has been approved for use in natural burial cemeteries.

Features of the Enviro

  • Plantation grown radiata pine
  • Water-based adhesive
  • Lined with unbleached calico
  • Lid secured with wooden dowels
  • Rope handles made of natural fibres
