Hong Kong group selling paper coffins

HONG KONG (NBC) - A group in Hong Kong is trying to promote an "ecologically friendly" product that you literally take to the grave.

The caskets are made of recycled paper. The creators say they take about a half-hour less time to burn, saving the environment from some of the emissions released during cremation.

Cremation is becoming more and more popular in hyper-crowded Hong Kong, where grave space is at a premium.

The coffins also cost about half as much as regular wooden ones.
