Eco-friendly funeral homes. It is estimated that more than one million trees are cut down every year in order to be used in funeral services. In a world where population growth is constant, the number of trees used to say the last goodbye to relatives is reaching alarming figures.
An alternative are the eco-friendly coffins, some of them made of a mixture of nut-peels and natural resins while others are made of cardboard avoiding, in this way, the cutting down of the trees.
If customers have expressed his/her inclinations through cremation, a series of innovative and eco-friendly funerary urns are available in the market like those that can be thrown to the sea together with the ashes contained on its interior and which are dissolved in a few hours.
In this way, the dilemma between traditions and practical issues is served.
