Ecopod coffin

With us all increasingly looking for everyday efforts to be more green and care for our planet, why not consider an option for our last day here? Hazel Selina has. The British designer has used her background in natural birth to turn her attention to the primal event of death, and its impact on the planet, by creating the Ecopod. Through research she discovered that in London alone, 89% of coffins used every year — some 600,000 in total — are made from chipboard covered with laminate, not a great product to bury in our soil. In contrast, the Ecopod is an environmentally friendly option being made from naturally hardened, 100% recycled paper, which will not pollute the atmosphere or the earth.
