Why Should I Get A Biodegradable Urn?
Many people have different reasons for using a biodegradable urn. One of the primary reasons is protecting the environment. Environmentally conscious individuals feel positive knowing that a biodegradable urn ultimately returns to the earth nutrients and minerals while preserving land. In addition, biodegradable urns are ideal for scattering at sea, as the paper construction protects the remains from being haphazardly scattered by the wind.
Do They Really Work?
All biodegradable urns are excellent for land or sea scattering and include a biodegradable bag for storing the cremated remains until the final scattering or burial. All our biodegradable urns are constructed to insure smooth removal and replacement of the lid. For sea dispersions, the biodegradable urns begin to descend within ten to fifteen minutes. Within approximately 2-3 days biodegradable urns will fully degrade. Ultimately, the biodegradable bag disintegrates and the urn descends until resting on the sea floor. For land burial, the biodegradable urn will completely disintegrate within a year or less; the actual amount of time depends on the climate in which the burial occurs. Memorials.com recommends checking with your state and local laws before scattering any cremated remains in one of these biodegradable urns as laws will differ from state to state.
In What Forms are Biodegradable Urns Available?
Up to this point we have discussed two basic categories of marketable portable urns. Basically those include urns that are constructed to biodegradable continuum from a few hours to an upper scale to completely biodegrade within a maximum of three or four days. Indeed a third type of marketable biodegradable urn is expected to disperse cremated remains upon mother earth after centuries of protection from the elements of earth's harsh environment. So you desire to keep beloved ashes on a wall or fireplace mantle, or on a night-stand or mounted holding shelf of your bed's headboard! Want to take lovable ashes with you when you fly off to the next big family reunion? Since September 11, 2000 all commercial airline baggage and carry on luggage will have to pass the scrutiny of a team of airport transportation security administration (TSA) officers prior to boarding the aircraft. An inexpensive biodegradable urn will solve your boarding woes. Your relative's ashes will accompany you on the luggage rack near your seat in the airplane cabin because cremated ashes within will have been seen through security x-ray technology, thus passing airport security muster.
