I may not like the idea of being buried in something that looks like an egg carton, but the fact that the DanCof coffin is biodegradable earns it huge pro points. Made out of paper pulp, it will allow eco-conscious individuals to continue to hold their environmental beliefs even after death.
Created by Denmark designer Bendt Stov, the DanCof coffin may not be the first eco-friendly coffin on the market, but it is one of the few capable of looking like a traditional coffin.
