For those interested in low-cost, "green" caskets, the Grand Forks Herald reports (June 15, 2013) that Affordable Coffins & Artery in St. Paul, MN, is now offering one of the simplest, most eco-conscious option available. This coffin shop recently started offering a new form of coffin called a trundle - a plain pine tray with handles that is used to place the body in the grave. Funeral Financials applauds Affordable Coffins for this latest innovation in eco-conscious burials.
The price of the trundle is the lowest casket cost Funeral Financials has been made aware of recently. At $195, the minimalist trundle is affordable by any standard. The trundle can be interred within cemeteries that allow for green burials (burials that do not involve embalming and require minimalist caskets). Most green cemeteries allow the body to be buried without any kind of casket at all. However, the benefit of the trundle is that it allows for easy transportation, and then burial, of the body.
Ranging from $995 to $3,000 or more, a casket is sometimes one of the most expensive purchases during the funeral planning process. For those who are interested in an eco-conscious, minimalist approach, choosing a pine trundle represents considerable savings. However, depending on cemetery regulations, choosing a trundle may not be a viable option. It is best if people plan for these types of decisions in advance. Funeral Financials also recommends that people who have funeral insurance, burial life insurance, or AARP Insurance may want to read over their policy or call their agent to verify what the insurance will actually cover.
People can save thousands of dollars by choosing a minimalist, eco-conscious coffin design. Funeral Financials commends Affordable Coffins & Artery for their trundle coffin design, suitable for green burials.
