Ecopods are environmentally sound coffins made from 100% recycled paper and natural hardeners. The company ARKA has attracted orders from around the world for their green design coffins.
Made from ecologically sound materials the Ecopod is the ideal product for a non toxic burial or cremation. Perfect for use in greenfield sites.
When buried ecopods decompose quickly and without pollution. This concept has won Ecopod designer Hazel Selene the British House of Parliament â€œGold Appleâ€ award which recognizes companies than try to preserve the environment.
Hazel started thinking about coffin design when helping to
care for a dying friend. â€œI felt the
shape of the traditional coffin had been with us for many years and had become
associated with negative icons such as vampires. I wanted to design something beautiful,
ethical and made out of recycled materials.â€
There you have it...bad for vampires, good for the rest of us. If you're planning on dying any time soon, you should definitely check this one out.
