A grave matter

How eco-friendly are you?

Maybe you:

•Take reuseable bags on every trip to the grocery store.
•Started your own compost pile.
•Make sure your recyclable bin accumulates more suff then the garbage can.

A great start, definitely, but have you considered your environmental impact while you're busy resting in peace? If you are planning on using that burial plot would you go so far as taking your eternal rest in an eco-friendly coffin?

eco Rest coffins are made with either by-Board, an agricultural waste by-product that is bonded with a non-toxic resin or Re-board, a paper based product. If it were me, I'd go with the Re-board because it has a completely printable surface and who doesn't want to make one last statement?

Oh the options. On mine? Palm trees and mountains. No doubt.

What would you want memorialized on your earth-friendly, "blank canvas" coffin?

But that's not all to think about on your dying day, seriously.

For those concerned with the environmental impact from clothing, the Midcounties Co-operative Funeral Group has launched the UK's first recyclable corporate clothing line made entirely from biodegradable and sustainable sources.

"The first, 100% environmentally responsible tailored funeral wear collection."

Even the interlinings are made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles.

If there was a grading scale on how environmentally conscious a person is, I think having a funeral consisting of a biodegradable coffin and funeral staff dressed in recycled ceremonial garb gives you an A+.

And you can take that to the grave.
