I have developed a pattern of writing about sustainable/eco/green death. The way I see it, when it’s our time to become garbage in the ground, we might as well leave on a green note. The German made Uono Cocoon degrades in 10-15 years, is CO2 neutral, the gloss finish is water based, it can be used in the cremation process, and is made from renewable primary resources.
Available in 14 colors you can pick your style for your last appearance. Although the manufactures won’t state exactly what the material used to make the Cocoon is (I guess they don’t want anyone to steel their thunder) they state that it is hand shaped, placed in a mould, heated and hardened in an oven, then finished by hand. The handles fit flush for appeal and are available as ropes or stainless steel. Uono is a chic and relatively green way to go out.
