Compost... yourself!

Now you can... with EcoCoffins! Gardeney looking, huh?


  1. Do believe that I'd rather be composted in the form of carbon particles. Though its a "cute box" its still a box. Box. Claustrophobia.

    This is a great idea! It should be required that everyone is burried in these!

  3. Hey this is great! Of course regular funeral homes have cardboard boxes if you want to be directly cremated and don't want to buy an expensive and environmentally wasteful coffin. Or you can be freeze dried and stuffed. Our daughter who was 6 at the time we heard this on NPR thought it was a great idea. She could stuff us and have us with her for the rest of her life sitting on her sofa in the living room. Now that she's grown and on her own, she can't believe she made such a comment. And... you can be made into a diamond. You or rather your remains amount to about a carat. Hey, I have grandpa on my finger. That way you could last least that's what DeBeers wants you to believe.

  4. I think that coffin is totally cute--and I can't believe I'm saying that about a coffin!

    That said, forget the box... and forget that disgusting formaldehyde or whatever it is they use to "embalm" people. Dig a hole, stick me in, fill it up with dirt, and get together around a campfire to share a bottle of wine and remember the good times.

    I agree with blackswamp_girl. Embalming is for those frogs that you dissect in biology class not for people. Bleech!

    And wine around a campfire sounds like a great funeral. Maybe S'mores too.
