Bury Me in a Wool Coffin

Preferably under a newly planted tree.

Mucha Love to my Mama for emailing a great article about Hainsworth’s Natural Legacy caskets, a natural coffin choice for a green burial.

The coffin’s exterior is 100% British wool with six jute handles attached; the interior is lined with organic cotton. Each coffin also has an embroidered woolen nameplate. To remain natural, they don’t use dyes and only come in brown or white.   And the best eco-part, they are biodegradable.

A beautiful way to be buried indeed. I’ll take a white one.

Much Love from Sadie @allnaturalme
