Fairtrade Caskets for ashes. A wonderfully crafted environmentally-friendly and fairtrade cremation urn, we have seen a number of woven designs,
Made from Pandanus – an environmentally-friendly alternative to seagrass – it comes with a thick cotton bag for the ashes.
There are two designs, both in natural weave;
Allium (Round Casket 8″ in height by 7″ wide) or,
Tulip (Bell Shaped Casket 8″ in height by 7″ wide).
These urns are ideal for burial at a formal grave site or green burial.

Pandanus or wild pineapple is an environmentally friendly alternative to seagrass. Seagrass is an aquatic plant which grows in shallow coastal waters and provides shelter for many species of nursery fish. When this is harvested, the habitat is destroyed and the fish are endangered. Pandanus, on the other hand, is a prolific and rapidly growing weed which thrives anywhere on land, even in adverse conditions. When woven it is almost indistinguishable from seagrass.
These beautiful urns are specifically designed for burial, you can feel totally reassured that by placing your loved one’s ashes into the urn and then burying it, it will start to naturally biodegrade allowing the gentle release of ashes back into the soil.
