Designer and founder of LETObamboo, Anne Astorino, is now taking on a new venture – Ethical Caskets

Ethical Caskets provides an alternative option to traditional caskets and coffins, by introducing 100% Bamboo Ply caskets. Our caskets are made out of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and Living Building Challenge certified bamboo, and all components used are biodegradable. 

We pride ourselves on being able to provide you with a beautiful, Earth Friendly casket that perfectly reflects your loved ones personality. Each casket is expertly made in our Melbourne based warehouse by our dedicated team, who prioritise making sure your experience is as stress free as possible.

By choosing Ethical Caskets, you are ensuring your loved one is laid to rest in a bamboo casket that won’t cost the Earth.
