Ecopod: Enviro-Coffin

Ecopods are environmentally sound coffins made from 100% recycled paper and natural hardeners. The company ARKA has attracted orders from around the order prescription propecia non prescription cialis 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 “Gold Apple” 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.”

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.

Saves a lot of online viagra sales wood, must save energy when cremating and will compress during burial, so graves wont sink when the coffin eventually collapses.

Natural burials
written by steve, May 22, 2009
Traditional burials actually do harm to the environment, from the toxic embalming process that uses gallons of formaldehyde, to the concrete lined graves, and the acres upon acres of chemically treated and viagra buyviagra onlin constantly mowed grass. People might as well be buried in endlessly sprawling parking lots or toxic waste dumps.

Thankfully there's a growing movement for natural burial sites. With only a few acres these green sites preserve a self-sustaining ecosystem with native trees and wildlife, wild flowers, butterfly colonies, etc., all contributing to a more natural and beautiful final resting place.

Pragmatically, a dignified, green, natural burial can save thousands of dollars. This savings could even be put towards memorial services, donated to charity, bequeathed, etc.

More people are becoming aware of the green alternatives available. But it's important that this movement leads to a greening up the order cheap cialis death care industry itself.
