New Eco-Friendly Coffins Are Coming To Pattaya

Pattaya’s City Hall was used as the venue to introduce a new type of coffin that is actually made entirely of thick cardboard, with the advantage being that precious natural wood can be conserved for other more useful purposes, such as high quality furniture.

Pattaya, the 1st April 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: This innovative new idea comes from a second generation of funeral specialist who started business in Bangkok more than twenty years ago. Now a new technology has taken over with the introduction of “Green Coffins” made almost entirely from heavy duty cardboard.

Our Pattaya City Mayor, Khun Ittiphol Khunplome and many leading city officials attended this presentation, which proved to be a very interesting new ecologically friendly concept. Special heavy duty cardboard is imported from Japan, and although it is lightweight, these coffins are waterproof, and they will carry a weight of 250 Kg. By the time the usual decorations are placed over the inner cardboard coffin, it is impossible to tell any difference between these and the older wooden style caskets, which are more time consuming to build.

Furthermore, it seems a pity to use valuable high quality wood based products for something that after a few days will be consumed completely in a funeral furnace at one of the temples. In western countries this is even more obvious, as elaborate coffins are created from premium grade polished timber, only to be buried deep beneath the ground a few days later. These new ornately decorated cardboard coffins serve this purpose just as well, and allow premium grade timber to be used for furniture and other indoor products of lasting beauty.

The Siam Funeral & Repatriation Service specialize in not only funerals, but also a repatriation service for overseas clients, who wish to have their loved ones in Thailand shipped home to an overseas country. Khun Viroj Suriyasenee, who is the President of the company, stated that they give a complete coverage of Thailand, with their embalming service, plus they handle all airport transfers and the necessary documentation that is required. A branch of the Siam Funeral & Repatriation Service is expected to open in Pattaya late in May of this year. But more information can also be obtained from their website at www.siamfuneralandrepatriation.com
