Eco friendly coffins are a great idea to solve the problem of limited burial space, especially in areas like Hong Kong. "As Carrie Yau, Hong Kong's Permanent Secretary for Health, Welfare & Food stated, â€œThe eco-coffin coincides with the Asian philosophy of integration between man and nature. We will further study the material and design of the coffin and promote the application of the eco-coffin in Hong Kong to bring out the concept of paying tribute to the deceased through protecting the environment.â€
Eco coffins are a new type of cardboard coffin. They are modern, strong (up to 20 stone) and can be colourful. They can also be plain cardboard, a more traditional wood grain, or they can look like nothing you've ever seen; because you will be able to design your own. We even have a coffin you can decorate yourself. They are 100% environmentally friendly, made from 90% recycled rigid honeycomb cardboard (RHC).
