In the past few years, funerals have moved away from being sombre events, but a celebration of life. From the sheer opulence of people being buried in Louis Vuitton inspired coffins to, adding your personal touch to your loved one’s send-off.
Personalisation continues to be a rising trend when it comes to funerals.
Green funerals that are personalised
More people are stepping out of the confines of traditional funerals to say farewell to their loved ones in a way that they would have wanted to be remembered while doing good for the environment.
The move to more eco-friendly methods of burial has stemmed from research from WHO which revealed that the earth that people get buried in is becoming toxic, depleting the fertility of the soil.
Some of the ways in which people are doing this is to have their ashes turned into diamonds, placed into vinyl or being turned into jewellery that can be worn by a loved one.
In South Africa, businesses such as First Choice Coffins have tapped into the market by offering South Africans a choice to personalise their coffins or urns.
The added bonus is that their products are made from 100% recycled material that is also biodegradable.
