PAIR BUILD WORLD'S FIRST STRAW COFFIN

A pair of Long Eaton based school friends have claimed to have invented the world's first straw coffin.

Inspired by events following a family bereavement, the pair came up with the idea of an eco-coffin, one which helps reduce an individual's carbon footprint and set up a company under the name Eco Rest at Sawley Marina.


Neither have previously been involved in the funeral business but already they have attracted interest from other parties after gathering world distribution rights.
