Kingstown Green casket

Kingstown Green is a small worker-owned manufacturing co-op that produces eco-friendly, handcrafted caskets that are solid wood and biodegradable. Originally established in Illinois, the business moved to Hartford, Conn., in 2022, and is marketing its caskets to funeral homes, as a more sustainable, premium alternative to mass-produced caskets. Kingstown Green is a member of the Green Burial Council, a nonprofit organization approved by the Federal Trade Commission to regulate the green sector of the funeral industry. The caskets have received the highest rating given by the Green Burial Council. BII Fund II invested in the co-op in 2023.
