Hainsworth Coffins is a company that specializes in eco-friendly caskets that are made from wool and organic cotton.

Hainsworth currently has two coffins available--the Swaledale and the Wharfedale. Swaledale has a recycled cardboard frame wrapped in wool material. The Wharfedale uses the dame cardboard frame but is wrapped in organic cotton instead.

Both of these eco-friendly caskets are sustainable and biodegradable. Hainsworth also has a line of eco-friendly urns.
