It never ceases to amaze me what prince charles will come up with next!
The Prince held a garden party at Clarence house and it "a garden party with a difference" ,it was a twelve day event to show people the hose from his bathroom window what recycles water!
[im crying laughing] and also showed his vegetable patch[yeah starting from when he opened the door
]
In this event he made sure to have his new idea for the public what he thinks is a wonderfull help to the environment.
wollen coffins,its a way of being green in your death! The coffins degrade very quick so we can get oil quicker,oh i mean have a better standart of life


The £600 to £800 coffins were on display at the opening of a Garden Party to Make a Difference.

The 12- day festival allows the public to see around the Prince’s garden in Clarence House for the first time, including his vegetable patch, the hose pipe from the bathroom window to recycle water for the plants and a number of other personal touches.

Celebrities including Alan Titchmarsh, Jools Holland and Dame Vivianne Westwood will be giving talks to encourage people to turn off the lights, recycle old clothes and even share baths



He was really impressed with the coffins and asked for them specifically to be at the garden party,” she said. “He sees it is a way of being environmentally friendly all through your life. At the same time it supports British farmers which is a big area of interest to him.”

The woollen coffins were launched by Hainsworth woollen mills last summer and already more than 500 have sold. The patented line is now being sold in Europe and the US and will soon be available in Australia and New Zealand. The company hope to be selling more than 5,000 coffins a year within five years, meaning one per cent of people in the UK will be buried in woollen coffins


Ats what is this dude thinking? I couldnt make this stuff up!!!

I don't really think that after my death I will be too concerned as to if I am dying "green" or not. Those wooly coffins look too much like luggage...I'm afraid I'd get mixed in with some baggage and taken to a resort or something.

It amazes me that these celebrities are the ones pushing this 'green' crap when they are sitting in their millions upon million dollar mansions with their gas guzzling vehicles.

Woolen coffins are actually a very good idea as a replacement for wood. Wool is very cheap and many farmers in the UK don't even bother shearing their flocks as there is no economic market. Wood is not so cheap and is often from unreplaced sources.

Not sure why you are so scathing.

Regards

To the op: if the guy wants to be green, let him. Be grateful for the chuckles you had at his expense and think of all the O2 you inhaled and CO2 you exhaled.
Just kidding.

Wool coffins? Wouldn't burlap be even cheaper? But then again a stylish Scottish patterned wool coffin (kilt not included) might not be so bad.

Eccentric behavior is to be expected from someone whose every whim has been indulged since childhood.

the problem I have is with this statement:

reading weird black majic books on his wedding night with Diana laying there waiting


I have never heard that before, I am wondering if you could provide a credible link or source to that ??

Thanks in advance,

contrary to my initial impression, you have proved yourself a gentlemen and a class act!


And for the most part I do agree with the woolen coffin's being a bit ridiculous when promoted by a man whose family rests in royal fashion...

Respectfully,

Woollen is a good idea. I was planning on a willow ensemble previously, but given my opposition to DEFRA's shameless and idiotic promotion of short rotation willow coppicing, I have been looking to an alternative. Not that I have any immediate plans...

I had also considered cardboard, but I was really worried about leakage and the bottom giving out. Wool is far more practical in that respect. Absorbant, but strong. I think this could catch on. I shall be recommending it.

It takes one to know one,thanks for that buddy
,i added you as a friend,hope you dont mind.
That was my point,they get buried in gold plated coffins and the every day man cant have a bit of hard wood.
Im all for helping the planet,but i think picking up beer can plastic rings so animals,birds and the like wont get hurt is better,than saving carbon credits and ending up paying for breathing
thanks again

Not a bad idea, but someone is taking the mick with the price.

I can knock up a nice scarf for my kids in a couple of hours, super chunky wool which would be well comfy if you are alive to feel it.
I reckon i could do a whole sleeping bag coffin affair for about £50 no probs.


The way the economy is, and the way the price of funerals is going up, i think this is a pretty good idea.

I've told the kids they can bury me in the garden.

Hey KilgoreTrout Thanks for the reply and i respect your ideas,just not my cup of tea
I have a few echo warrior friends that will want one.
Would you consider hemp? ,its a lot stronger and the insects will be high so they might not bother eating you

I will always more than consider hemp, but I don't mind the insects eating me, that's kind of the point.

Viking burial every time I'm afraid.


At least the Princes are tying to do something useful with themselves. What exactly does the queen do these days?


What did she ever really do?
