That friend of your grandpa's who told the lame golf jokes can now express himself from beyond the grave, with Creative Coffins' eco-friendly recycled cardboard caskets. In addition to fake wood and wicker prints, you can get team logos, flags, or, for the dead wit, a flower-print coffin emblazoned with the words, 'Gone to seed.' Creative Coffins is obviously filling a gap in the market: since their web site went live in May, '"The response has been remarkable," says director Efrem Cockett. "We hope that this is an indication that we are providing a valuable service to those looking for an environmentally friendly coffin that truly reflects the personality of their loved one."' Kind of gives the lie to "going to a better place," but sure! [Daily Express]
