In our efforts to go green to care for the environment, Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors is the first in Singapore to introduce biodegradable urns for sea/water burials - The Shell Urn and The Lotus Urn. These urns does not contribute to the pollution of the seas because the material used to construct it can be easily broken down into harmless particles. Both The Shell Urn and The Lotus Urn are handcrafted from recycled paper and paper clay they are also hand painted giving each urn a unique appearance. The urn consists of a biodegradable bag which will contain the ashes.

In addition to biodegradable urns, we have Eco-friendly Willow Casket that is made from sustainable materials – fast growing willow and bamboo. The Willow Casket is fully lined with a natural, unbleached cotton interior, matching pillow and privacy shield. When the casket is buried in the earth it will break down naturally over time. Contact us to learn more about it.
Other than using biodegradable products in our business, we also encourage our clients, their family, and friends to do their part in saving the environment by recycling the empty plastic water bottles at MVS. At MVS, there are recycling bins within its vicinity for visitors to recycle their empty plastic water bottles. Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors also held Go Green activities at MVS during our Ullambana Day 2016, where participants are able to make a small terrarium and air freshener from their used plastic bottles.
