The Bamboo Eco2 coffin is an innovative synergy of recycled and renewable materials, this new range features greater functionality with all the high quality and beauty of a hand-woven coffin.

exterior of the bamboo eco2 is coffins are woven from the sustainable and flexible bamboo cane. These have been woven in the traditional way, giving it a smooth surface. The straw-coloured bamboo has a light green hue, and as with all natural materials, the colour of the bamboo can slightly differ on each strand. The interior is a simple, eco-friendly, cardboard structure, rather than the traditional wooden frame, manufactured in the UK from 80% recycled material and FSC certified wood pulp.

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth with a typical growth rate of 3 – 10 cm per day but in good conditions some species can also grow up to nearly a metre per day. The bamboo selected for making our coffins is coming from the species Phyllostachus Pubescens, also known as “builders bamboo” in Asia, as it is used in making architectural structures such as houses, bridges or for scaffolding. Its special tubular hollow structure gives it a strength-to-weight ratio which outperforms most other materials, even steel, whilst being incredibly flexible at the same time. As a bamboo grove also produces 30% more oxygen than trees, it is becoming increasingly popular as an environmentally friendly material.

Several processes are needed to transform a natural bamboo culm into a lasting building material, which mainly involves the removal of starch, often splitting the cone into strips and the correct process of drying.

We want to make the selection and buying process of an Eco friendly Coffin as easy as possible and we understand that not everyone will be aware of some of the key information for buying a coffin or what information that you need to consider before placing an order.

Coffin / Casket Size 

We recommend that the internal dimensions are at least the height plus 2” (50mm) and the width of the shoulders plus 2” (50mm) of the deceased, if you need help with size conversion click here to go our conversion guide.

Nameplates

We supply Two standard Bamboo blank name plates with every coffin, but we also offer other options (see the Nameplate tab for more details and pictures).

You can either have the name plates engraved by us (using Engraving lines 1,2 & 3 when you order) or you can arrange for this to be done yourself or by your Funeral Director).

How strong are the coffins?

All of our coffins are weight tested to carry 150 kg or 23 stone and can be reinforced further if necessary.

Can the Coffins be used for a cremation?

All of the coffins we sell are suitable for burial or cremation and are supplied with solid flat bases with finger grips and load bearing handles. They have all been tested specifically for cremation by Marchwood Scientific Services Ltd. in accordance with the Coffin and Casket testing protocol as laid out by the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers Association.

If you are purchasing and cardboard coffin for a cremation please check with you Funeral director if they require a Plywood base, all of our standard cardboard coffins come with a Cremation base, but we have seen a few funeral homes who require the base to be plywood.

What’s the difference between a coffin and a casket?

A coffin is wider at the shoulders than it is at the head or foot, while a casket is rectangular in shape, with straight sides between head and foot.
