Cardboard Coffins on Sale - For Green Burials or Cremations

We recommend the best cardboard coffins on sale for a dignified, simple and green cremation or burial.  

Many coffins or caskets are harmful to the environment and do not break down easily.  Often they are made of toxic materials, and may take many years to decompose.  

Funeral homes and crematoriums are obliged to allow you to use any type of coffin or casket you choose, though some areas may have particular requirements.  

"Use an “alternative container” instead of a casket for cremation. No state or local law requires the use of a casket for cremation. A funeral home that offers cremations must tell you that alternative containers are available, and must make them available. They might be made of unfinished wood, pressed wood, fiberboard, or cardboard." 

"Provide the funeral home with a casket or urn you buy elsewhere. The funeral provider cannot refuse to handle a casket or urn you bought online, at a local casket store, or somewhere else — or charge you a fee to do it. The funeral home cannot require you to be there when the casket or urn is delivered to them."

From the FTC Funeral Rules.  You can read the full rules for the USA here.
