We certify coffins, caskets or shrouds from the following manufacturers for use in natural burial cemeteries.
All coffins are required to meet our standard requiring locally sourced untreated wood, minimal metal fixings, water-based wood glues, natural material linings and handles.
When we started, we had to make our own coffins. Now there are dozens of models and designs available, made by almost every local manufacturer. We do not certify imported materials, including bamboo.
