imageA unique funeral product will be introduced to the public this week in Canada under the fitting name of Tribute Caskets. The founders of this organization can be seen pitching this product on Dragons’ Den, airing Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011 at 8 p.m. (8:30 p.m. in NFLD) on CBC Television.

Tribute Caskets are made using recycled content fibreboard, non-toxic starch based glues and custom printed in a variety of customized designs. This product’s design options are endless – one can view a catalogue and choose a casket that features photos of their lifetime, images of their favorite hobby, a meaningful quote or poem, ?virtually any “picture” that tells the story of an individual’s unique life.

For many people, a traditional funeral is out of step with how we have lived our lives and want to be remembered. We want more than the standard wooden box or metal casket that our parents and grandparents chose – we want our funeral to tell the story of who we really were; what our life meant, and the legacy we leave behind.

“This product fills a unique need, as consumers increasingly search for a more affordable and environmentally responsible memorial option that truly defines and celebrates the way they have lived their lives.” says president, Mike Salisbury.

“Now the time has come for these cultural changes to be represented in our end-of-life decision about our funeral wishes and plans.” states Salisbury “Finally there’s a new burial/cremation product available that is kind to the environment, and reflects who we are and how we have lived our lives; our interests, passions and personality.”
