Eco Friendly Caskets

In some parts of the world (especially in north America) these are refered to as Coffins or Couches.

Here in New Zealand we prefer to use the term caskets for the shaped or couches for the oblong style.

Nextgen Bamboo Casket

The Nextgen is made from laminated bamboo and is beautifully finished in natural timber oils.

The gentle flowing shape of the nextgen offers low sides for easier viewing and a softly curved base to cradle and support. Comfortable wooden handles are built into the sides, an uncluttered and attractive outline.

Constructed from bamboo, with a 100% cotton quilted mattress and finished with citrus-scented organic wood-oil, nextgen can be cremated or buried without causing unnecessary pollution.
