Sustainability Policy

The path to a cleaner, healthier future begins with the small decisions we make each day. That’s why we’re committed to making smart use of the Earth’s resources and choosing products with the planet in mind. We constantly look for ways to be even more responsible in our use of energy, water, and other natural resources—and to empower others to do the same.

It gives us great pleasure to offer beautiful products sourced directly from the environment, the harvesting and use of which will aid our planet’s eco system. The materials used in the alternative coffins we supply are much more sustainable than hard woods because they replenish much more quickly. Furthermore they are much more biodegradable than the traditional veneered coffins, and they do not release harmful emissions into the atmosphere when cremated.

For are more traditional coffin range we strive to use only FSC certified companies, that recognise that future success of coffin manufacturing depends on the continued availability of timber from the forests of the world and they are fully committed to recycling processes and of insisting that where felling does take place replanting is undertaken to ensure the continuity of raw materials.

We recognise that businesses can have a negative impact on the environment. We are committed, and enjoy, finding ways in which we can reduce the impact of our work both in the office and when work takes us away from the office.

It is our policy to:

  • Recycle as much waste material as possible
  • Avoid the use of paper wherever possible. For example, sending invoices and quotes via email as PDF files.
  • Recycling equipment that is no longer of use to the company. For example, giving away items such as computers and printers that we no longer use.
  • Keep energy usage low. For example, making use of low energy light bulbs throughout and ensuring that computers are shut down after work.
  • Reuse waste paper (from the printer) where possible, making use of the blank side for notes etc.
  • Purchase products made with recycled paper. For example, paper towels, printer paper
  • Purchase products with a lower environmental impact. For example environmentally safe soaps and detergents.
  • Use low impact transport for travel to and from work and travel for business. For example, we use public transport to attend meetings and offer a Cycle Scheme to encourage staff to cycle to work or to carpool.
  • Avoid unnecessary travel by making use of instant messaging, video and audio conferencing, telephone and email.
