2. Average Biodegradable Casket Cost is Less Than a Traditional Casket

Traditional funeral caskets come at a premium.  Its costs manufacturers a lot of money, time, and energy to produce them. 
This is why funeral home providers charge you $2,000-$10,000 just for the casket alone.

3. FTC Funeral Rule Protects You From Being Ripped Off  

All funeral homes must abide by the funeral rule.

The funeral rule was created by the FTC to stop funeral homes from shady business practices like bait and switching their unsuspecting customers.

By law, every funeral home must show you their price list should you ask to see it.  On the price list, you will see each item or service itemized.

This includes their general price list for service and also their casket price list.

The key takeaway is that the funeral rule helps you to save money.  The law allows you the freedom to purchase funeral products from other vendors and use them for the funeral service.

This includes caskets. 

You are not required to choose the casket options provided by the funeral home.  Legally a funeral home must make accommodations to accept outside caskets if you find them cheaper elsewhere.
