Designer and founder of LETObamboo, Anne Astorino, is now taking on a new venture – Ethical CasketsEthical Caskets provides an alternative option to traditional caskets and coffins, by introducing bamboo caskets. 

When considering how polluting elements interact with our Earth, Anne carried out extensive research into materials and designs, before producing her truly inspirational alternatives.

All our bamboo caskets are made from 100% bamboo grass, and the linings are non-toxic and bio-degradable. They are also able to personalised, so you can write a message on the outside of the casket for your loved one. 

By choosing Ethical Caskets, not only are you making sure your loved one is laid to rest in a beautiful, personalised casket, but you are also making an environmentally conscious decision.
