Heywood Funeral Service is proud to offer a host of sustainable funeral options thanks to our eco-friendly coffins and caskets.
Eco-friendly funerals that ‘do their bit’ for the environment, can have all the dignity and tradition of a more conventional funeral – you can simply choose one of our beautiful, eco-friendly coffins.
Heywood Funeral Service also offers the option of a strikingly beautiful willow coffin, handmade in the UK.
These traditionally weaved caskets are made using so little energy that they are a truly sustainable option. They use less energy during cremation and are fully degradable if buried.
Our bamboo coffins are another alternative to traditional caskets and, again, offer a very sustainable funeral solution. They are made in responsibly managed facilities in China, using purpose-grown bamboo that is nurtured in specially licensed plantations and not eaten by pandas.
Again, these beautiful caskets decompose more quickly than traditional coffins and their carbon footprint is minimal.
