Elegant, practical, natural, bio-degradable. Amidst an ever-increasing awareness of environmental issues, a shift toward simpler greener funerals, and the emergence of natural burial grounds in Australia, the revolutionary bio-podTM meets the growing demand for a practical, elegant alternative to traditional coffins.
The pleasing lines of its organic ‘seed pod’ shape reflect the very essence of nature – the beginning and end of life. The bio-podTM provides a practical, symbolic way for the physical remains to be returned to the earth naturally, with style and dignity.
On the outside, the strong, protective layers of natural jute and hemp are tastefully embellished with a selection of embroidered designs. Inside, the ingenious bio-active liner meets the most stringent practical and legal requirements. Using the specially crafted church bearer, the bio-podTM can be easily moved on existing roller systems in hearses, take its position on a wheeled trolley, or be carried by pall bearers from the church or chapel in the traditional manner. At the graveside, carry bars slide into place allowing pall bearers or funeral staff to position the bio-podTM at the graveside with ease and safety.
No matter where you live, no matter whether you’re motivated by environmental challenges, or simply attracted to the idea of a natural, gentle return to the earth, the bio-podTM represents a truly elegant choice.

We Help You Plan & Organise A Natural Earth Burial With Ease
When in a time of grief, it can be hard to know what kind of funeral service to plan as there are many different options. If your loved one gave any last wishes about what to do with their remains, your decision might be a little easier.
Cremation is the least expensive option and family members will be given an urn containing the ashes, which can then be scattered or buried. We offer our cremation services at the Enfield Crematorium as well as the Centennial Park Crematorium.
Some people prefer a traditional burial where the body is placed into a wooden coffin and then lowered into the ground. Family and friends then have a graveside that can be adorned with flowers and visited.
A natural earth burial offers you all the advantages of a traditional burial, but it is much more environmentally friendly and the greenest option. The body is placed into a bio-pod that is made from natural materials that biodegrade and return the remains of your loved one to the earth.
Choosing to have a natural burial funeral can be a wonderful option for those who are conscious of the environment and it is a much more natural method of the circle of life.
As with all our funeral services that we offer, when you appoint us for natural burial services, we take care of everything down to the smallest of details.
Our Adelaide Natural Earth Burial Services Are Unique
Our unique Bio Pod system offers an elegant and natural alternative to a traditional coffin and it meets all legal requirements thanks to its bio-active liner. On the outside of the pod, protective layers of jute and hemp offer protection from the elements and they can be embellished with a selection of decorative designs.
The ‘seed pod’ design reflects the very essence of nature and allows for seamless transportation from the ceremony of your choice to the final resting place.
The pod can be carried by pallbearers and transported in a hearse, much like a traditional coffin. Once it arrives at the graveside, carry bars slide into place allowing the pod to be lowered into position delicately and safely. The pod is then buried as normal and returns to the earth naturally, unlike traditional methods.
Each natural burial site in Adelaide is leased for a period of 99 years and grants automatic rights of renewal. Even in the event of sale, the rights of descendants are secured indefinitely.
At Signature Funeral Services, we work hard to make this difficult time as easy as possible so please get in touch with us with your questions if we haven’t covered the information that you need to know above.
