Greenfield Creations provide a variety of coffin choices and encourage people to have the coffin they really want. Their hope is that, by helping you have the personalised coffin of your choice, they make a difference to you and your family.
Whether you are considering your own arrangements for the future, or you are trying to choose a suitable coffin for a loved one, Greenfield Creations know how important it is that the choice you make is the right one.
If you are organising a funeral for a member of your family, or a much loved friend, you will want their farewell to be personal to them. This does not need to be an expensive cost to you or the environment.
The Greenfield Creations cardboard coffin is a strong, sturdy, but lightweight coffin which has been developed to meet the needs of those who require an environmentally friendly and biodegradable coffin. Over the last few years demand for ‘greener’, and more cost effective, funerals has increased dramatically.
People are as different in death as they are in life and a personalised coffin can help pay tribute to the person who has died.
Greenfields Creations were very kind and have given us a basic white cardboard coffin, which we were able to decorate and display at the Border Union Agricultural Show. Rhiannon, who was in charge of decorating and personalising the coffin decided to use white Card.
This fitted in with the ethos that all materials used at our burial grounds need to be enviromentally friendly. While continuing along the natural path, the card was cut into shapes depicting leaves, insects and flowers, which were used to cover the coffin; along with Native Woodland's motto - Simple, Natural, Beautiful written in quilled in card glued to the top of the coffin.
We did this not only to increase awareness and interest at the show, but to show people that personalising a cardboard coffin can be easy, elegant, simple and the results can be beautiful.
Most people had heard of cardboard coffins but few had actually seen one. They were all were reassured by how strong they are. One man said "Yep, that'll do me - cheap and simple"
