The Eco Friendly Casket Company
supplying families with sustainable Earth friendly caskets
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do we sell eco-friendly caskets?
We believe that our caskets are the best option for both our customers and the planet. Our caskets are a naturally renewable and sustainable resource. They are biodegradable, eco-friendly and suitable for traditional and green burials or cremation. They are strong, respectful and dignifying, each one in itself a work of art.
Am I allowed to supply my own casket?
Yes you are. You have the right to choose a casket independently. Many families in rural and remote areas cannot visit a funeral director to choose a casket. Your order can be delivered to your home or the funeral director of your choice. Funeral directors are getting more used to people supplying their own caskets.
Are the caskets suitable for a green burial or cremation?
All our caskets meet the requirements for both traditional and green burials or cremation. Green burials and cremation are gaining popularity in Australia. Our caskets include a cotton lining, a cotton quilt and a rigid base which are all fully biodegradable.
How do I place an order?
Choose which products you would like from us. You can place your order online or over the phone. If you have any questions just ring us to discuss which options are best for your family. We accept Credit Card, PayPal and Bank transfer payments.
What sizes are available?
We have a range of casket sizes from very small to large. Our largest caskets are weight rated to hold 150kg in weight and 193cm (6ft 4in) in length.
When will my order arrive?
We use a specialised national freight service to expertly handle our road orders and a local Airline for orders that need to be sent by air.
