Environmentally friendly funeral directors in Essex

Striving to be environmentally conscious is something that has gradually become more important in all aspects of our day to day lives. From taking part in green lifestyle choices such as composting and recycling, to using biodegradable products in our homes, looking out for Mother Earth is something we are all far more aware of.

Essex funeral directors are going green

You will also find that this is very much the case for funeral directors in Essex too. Particularly over the last few years, green burial funeral services have become increasingly popular in the Essex area and Bennett’s Funeral Directors have found our families to be more environmentally aware of the choices they make when planning a funeral or arranging a funeral for a loved one. A good example of this would be the heightened demand for cardboard and EcoPod coffins as these are biodegradable and suitable for burial, cremation and the woodland funeral services held in Essex.

The EcoPod coffins that Bennett’s Funeral Directors supply are produced from recycled newspapers and hand finished with paper made from 100% mulberry pulp. We also stock a beautiful selection of wicker and willow coffins.

For an Essex funeral service to be considered eco-friendly, the following criteria should be met:

  • Woodland burial rather than cremation.
  • No embalming.
  • A coffin produced from bio-degradable materials such as recycled paper, cardboard, wicker, willow or bamboo.
  • The burial shroud would be made from bio-degradable materials like cotton for example.
  • The burial plot should not impact on the environment.
  • The burial site should not be personalised with anything that is not bio-degradable and if possible, should serve a purposes to nature.
