The Benefits of a Woven Coffin

There are many reasons why our customers purchase a natural woven coffin for use in a green burial or as a cremation container:

  • Appearance
  • Eco-friendly
  • Personalization
  • Price

People tend to fall into emotional overspending when it comes to the death of their family and friends.

But because the cost of funeral services is at an all-time high, many families are looking for options to save some money on funeral expenses.

The days when people paid $2,500-$10,000 for a burial casket is gone.

Now families are looking for casket prices that are within their budget, but also offer a memorable burial service for their family.

In this post, I share with you why the woven coffin is the smartest pick for a burial casket.

Three Important Takeaways from This Blog Post:

  1. the different types of natural woven coffins
  2. the average biodegradable coffins cost
  3. why our customers choose us to provide affordable and unique caskets

1. Different Types of Natural Woven Coffins

Just like traditional metal caskets, woven coffins come in different materials.

The most common are:

  • seagrass
  • banana leaf
  • willow
  • bamboo

The materials above will eventually biodegrade into the Earth slowly over time once the coffin is buried.

Even the production process of the woven coffin is eco-friendly.  Each one is handmade and the materials are harvested causing no harm to the environment.

2. Biodegradable Coffins Cost

Traditional funeral caskets are a high price item that costs a lot of money resources and time to make.
It's no surprise that funeral home providers expect you to pay $2,000-$10,000 to cover the cost of the casket.
Biodegradable woven coffins are cheaper to make and result in being cheaper for you to buy for your loved one.
The average cost for a biodegradable casket is $1,000- $2,000.
Our biodegradable casket collection starts at $999. (We also ship them for free to the funeral home of your choice, but more on that later).

*bonus takeaway* FTC Funeral Rule Protects You From Being Ripped Off 

I know said earlier that there will only be three important takeaways from this post, but I want to throw in a bonus before I get to the last one.

The funeral rule is a law that all funeral homes must abide by.

It was created by the FTC during a time when the funeral industry had tons of shady business practices.  Funeral homes were preying on those suffering from loss of family and "causing" them to emotional overspend and that's when the FTC stepped in.

By law, funeral homes must show you their price list when you ask for it.  The price list is an itemized list with all of their prices and services.

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

Most importantly, the funeral rule allows you to purchase funeral products from outside of the funeral home and use it for the memorial or funeral service.  This includes caskets.  You do not have to choose the casket options provided by the funeral home.  They are legally required to accept outside caskets if you find them cheaper elsewhere.
