Conventional caskets are finished with a number of petrochemical products such as lacquer, varnish, urethanes and varathanes. All of these products convey at least some level of harmful emissions when interred or cremated.
Enviro-Casket™ is finished in 100% natural oil, using natural pigment applied in three (3) involved and critical stages. This process allows for retention of an attractive finish without the use of petrochemicals.
This finish is a breakthrough for the casket industry in the true spirit of conservation.
The interior of Enviro-Casket™ is made from cotton and cellulose materials, eliminating petrochemical based materials contained in conventional caskets such as rayon, nylon, acetates, plastics and polymers.
Bedding for Enviro-Casket™ is provided by using 100% wood excelsior covered by 100% cotton mattress cover.
Enviro-Casket™ uses 100% cotton for pillow stuffing to provide superior function in this area as well.
Northern Casket (1976) Ltd. is proud to present Enviro-Casket™, an alternative that truly respects the conservation concerns of today and for the future.
