The Eco Friendly Casket Company
supplying families with sustainable Earth friendly caskets
We Respect Tradition
We are a family owned and run business based near Cairns in far North Queensland. We have over 30 years experience in customer service. Our business decisions are morally and ethically based and discussed within a large extended family.
Basket making and weaving have a rich history in the islands of the South Pacific and indigenous communities all around the world. We are proud to support these time honoured traditions. When you choose a handwoven casket, you are also providing much needed seasonal income for coastal farming families.
Willow has been used since ancient times. The following passages from the Bible include references to Willow.
“Now on the first day you shall take for yourselves the foliage of beautiful trees, palm branches and boughs of leafy trees and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God for seven days.” - Leviticus 23:40
"He also took some of the seed of the land and planted it in fertile soil. He placed it beside abundant waters; he set it like a willow. Then it sprouted and became a low, spreading vine with its branches turned toward him, but its roots remained under it. So it became a vine and yielded shoots and sent out branches." - Ezekiel 17:5-6
