Rest in Peace

Coffin Couches are made from recycled caskets collected from southern California funeral homes, a new way of thinking “green”.  Each casket has been previously occupied, but not buried, and is embossed with biohazard signs on the legs.  A bit of a step up the Gawth ladder than the black couch you got at Ikea, eh?

  1. Apparently, a body can be placed inside a coffin for display purposes, but not buried. I assume it may also have something to do with bodies destined for cremation, but don’t quote me on that.

    According to Coffin Couches’ website: “These coffins are not used for burial due to slight cosmetic inconsistencies.”

    Why that would matter once it’s six feet under is totally beyond me.
