Eco products are big business but many small producers find it difficult to get their product onto the Undertaker’s shop floor.
Roger Fowle, of Weaverman Baskets in Cambridgeshire, weaves coffins from Somerset willow. He has run into resistance when trying to get his product onto the shop floor. Fowle thinks, ‘a lot of it is to do with profit, the undertaker’s profit, they make a huge amount from selling a coffin’. When trying to get his coffins stocked he was told to cut prices, but Fowle argues that doing this would affect his bottom line.
