At Natural Grace, we have been offering eco-friendly funeral, burial and cremation services and products to families in Southern California since our inception. Over the years, families from other areas of the country have reached out to us interested in purchasing our burial and cremation products. As we inquired about why they had specifically contacted us, they consistently stated it was our selection of quality natural products combined with very reasonable pricing. In addition, they appreciated the background information we provided on the organizations producing the caskets and urns and the specific production details of those items. Thus, we now offer high quality, eco-friendly caskets, urns, shrouds and memorial items direct to the consumer no matter where they live in the U.S. at very affordable prices. We ship either direct to the consumer or to the appropriate funeral home, as needed. We support the work and commitment by all of the following casket builders, independent of any religious affiliation. It is the dedication to the eco-friendly nature of the product, the eco-friendly specifics of the manufacturing process and the commitment to the integrity of the work we support. Our staff is well informed and always available to answer any questions.
Seeking to be in accord with nature, Trappist Caskets make only earth-friendly products here in the United States. Since 1849, all of their caskets are from the handcrafted work of the Monks of the New Melleray Abbey in Peosta, Iowa. Trees from their own forest provide some of the lumber for their caskets and urns. A comprehensive forest management plan determines which trees are selectively harvested. With a new tree planted in memory of every casket and urn recipient, the forest continues to grow in a harmonious balance. The monks view their work as a corporal act of mercy – crafting caskets as if they were cradles. Thus, caskets of the purest quality are the result. Custom Casket engraving is available on all Caskets.
As they state, "Trappist Caskets are handcrafted at New Melleray Abbey, the Catholic monastery built by our order more than 160 years ago in the heartland of America. The same old-world craftsmanship and sense of sacred ministry, which constructed our stone buildings and has helped maintain our quiet life of constant prayer, work and simplicity, goes into every Trappist casket."
