At some point people begin thinking about and preparing for death, and with a wave of eco-friendly coffins, people now have the option of returning to the earth completely.

Ecoffins is a brand that specializes in the production of 100% biodegradable coffins that are appropriate for all types of burials or cremations. As the concern for the environment grows, many people are opting for an all-natural burial, which requires a coffin that will not stay solid in the ground. Made out of bamboo or banana leaves, these caskets are just as attractive as traditional wood, and they can even come in intricate patterns or prints. The new option of eco-friendly coffins bring a literal interpretation to "ashes to ashes," and allows people to be connected to nature, even after death.
