Notes

William Wainman from the SAWD Partnership estimates that around 30 per cent of bamboo coffins are used for green 'woodland' burials, on the basis of environmental issues; 50 per cent for cremation, on the basis of cost; and 20 per cent in cemeteries. Many people have commented that the coffins look 'comforting'.
