After urging people to wear old clothes for climate's sake, Prince Charles is now promoting a "green" way of dying. The price is impressed with the idea of woolen coffins which he feels is sustainable for dying.

The prince who's opening a week-long festival to promote sustainable lifestyle choices has requested for the woollen caskets to be put on display in his garden at the opening of the event, reports Telegraph.

The exhibit includes a number of more unusual uses for wool such as insulation for the loft, office furnishings and fashion wear.

Prince CharlesRachel Hainsworth, of Natural Legacy, that manufactures the wool coffins, said the Prince first saw the caskets at the beginning of the year.

“He was really impressed with the coffins and asked for them specifically to be at the garden party,” she said. “He sees it is a way of being environmentally friendly all through your life. At the same time it supports British farmers which is a big area of interest to him.”
