Swanborough Funerals are continuing to search and source products and services for Green Funerals. The Funeral Industry, including Funeral Homes, Cemeteries, and Crematorium Facilities in Queensland has a long way to go to provide truly environmentally viable and friendly green funeral options. Our role as funeral directors is to ensure we create a green funeral option awareness through our products and services.
Wicker or willow coffins Swanborough Funerals have found to be the most environmentally friendly and also cost-effective choice, whilst still meeting current legislative requirements for green burial and cremation. Willow is a completely natural product with the coffin lining being made of calico.
Willow plants are grown sustainably being very easy to harvest and requiring no fertilisers, pesticides, or herbicides. The plants can replenish fertility in degraded and marginal soils and also provide habitat for birds and insects. They also act as windbreaks, stabilise soil, and can combat river and coastal erosion. It also provides badly needed seasonal income for families in farming communities.
In the right soil conditions, willow tends to decompose much more quickly than traditional materials such as MDF, hardwoods, and metal. Willow is a carbon-neutral material and when burnt only gives off the same amount of carbon that it consumes within its lifetime.
Eco-friendly wicker coffins caskets are a beautiful and natural solution to a difficult problem.
