Bamboo Coffins

Our bamboo coffins are a traditional coffin shape or round-ended shape.

These fairtrade coffins are popular for woodland burial as they are entirely bio-degradeable and from a sustainable resource.

They are available as an option for all funerals that we arrange, and also for sale for delivery within the UK.

We have a plain Bamboo Eco (which comes in quite large sizes, up to 84 x 26 inches, the largest eco-coffin available) and the more ornate Bamboo Lattice.

Our Bamboo Coffins are hand made in China from material grown and cropped in licensed plantations. Bamboo is the fastest growing woody plant in the world (up to 3-4 feet/day). When it is cropped it quickly grows back. Pandas do not eat the species of bamboo. 

The factory where the bamboo coffins are crafted in China have been awarded Fair-trade status. This is in recognition of the fact that we have enabled our craftsmen to prosper whilst maintaining their time-honoured livelihoods.

They are transported by sea to the UK, “Russian-doll-style” – inside each other, maximising space thus minimising transport and fuel costs. The manufacturer calculates that the carbon footprint of our adult coffin from China to the UK uses no more fuel than a car journey of 4.63 miles.

They are certified by The Coffin, Casket and Shroud Association for quality and strength.  All coffins have a solid flat base making them suitable for cremation as well as burial.

All our eco-coffins are suitable for traditional, green burial or green cremation. Other natural coffins available are crafted from; cane, cardboard, willow/wicker, pandanus, seagrass, woven banana leaves, and wool.

Cemeteries and Crematoriums require that the coffin is identified with a nameplate. We can have a bamboo nameplate engraved for you for 90p per letter. Alternatively you could print one off your computer on cardboard or even paint or draw one as long as it has the person’s legal name on it.

Delivery

We deliver from Monday to Friday (not weekends) and to the mainland UK only. If you order before noon (Monday to Friday) we aim to deliver it within 48 hours, but it may take a little longer to parts of Scotland. You can have the casket delivered either to a private address or to a funeral director.

Once we have spoken to you, we will call your funeral director (or sometimes the hospital) to discuss the size of coffin required. We’ll then send you an email confirmation so that you can check that all the details are correct.
