Biodegradable Urns for Water, Air and Land Burial or For Scattering Ceremonies
A wise king once said, "All go to one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again." At funerals, these words are spoken as "Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust." Grieving is a process that will never disintegrate with the ashes of your loved one. But the real person does not reside in the cremated remains. Upon death, the essence of your loved one moves to a higher plain. A biodegradable cremation urn is a fitting way to let the ashes of your loved one return to the dust as their spirit lives on.
Whether you want to scatter the ashes of your loved one in a specific location, put them out to sea or bury them in the earth from which they came, one of our biodegradable cremation urns can provide a dignified and environmentally responsible way to honor the wishes of your beloved friend, spouse or family member. Browse through our comprehensive selection of biodegradable ash urns to find the right one for your needs.
Our biodegradable cremation urns can return your loved one's ashes to the earth in a way that honors their wishes and gives you a chance to say goodbye. Read below to learn more about our bio urns and how they can be used to release the ashes of your loved one to the earth.
Biodegradable Urns for Water
A water-soluble urn is designed to safely hold the ashes of your loved one until such a time as you are ready to release them into the sea, ocean, lake or another body of water. One such urn is our biodegradable Shell urn that comes in a variety of colors. It is shaped like a seashell and designed to float for five minutes before it gracefully descends to the deep as you say your final goodbye. If you are looking for a more traditional looking urn, another option is our vase-shaped urns made of gelatin and sand. The attractive containers will float briefly and then break down under water after a few days.
Urns for Ground Burial
If you are planning to bury the urn with the ashes of your loved one and wish for the container to return to the earth as well, we have many materials and styles that are beautiful and biodegradable. Our handcrafted pink salt urns have the appearance of marble but will disintegrate over time when buried. Our Earthen Gourd urn is made of natural gourd and wood that will break down naturally over time when interred. We have many other biodegradable urns suitable for burial made from natural materials like hemp, paper and clay. Many of our water urns will also disintegrate in time when buried.
When your loved one has requested to have their ashes scattered over a specific location by air or from land, scattering urns make it easy to release the ashes to their final destination. We have a lovely selection of themed biodegradable scattering cremation urns to choose from. These urns are adorned with doves, forests, rainbows, oceans, flowers, patriotic themes and more. Our attractive scatter urns allow you to say goodbye in a unique and memorable way.
