Dragons’ Den – Tribute Caskets

A 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 pm 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 include photos of their lifetime, images of their favorite pastime, a meaningful quote or verse …virtually any “picture” that tells the story of an individual’s unique life. “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.

Tribute Caskets: A One-of-a-Kind Tribute, to a Unique Life

For people who want something special and unique, but also affordable and environmentally responsible. 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. Now there’s a new funeral casket that is kind to the environment and reflects who we are and how we have lived our lives; our interests, passions and personality. This highly personal type of memorial is manufactured in Canada under the fitting name of Tribute Caskets. These caskets are made using sustainable, renewable fiberboard, non-toxic starch based glues and custom printed using vegetable oil inks. Suitable for traditional burial, cremation and the growing trend of natural burial.
