Biodegradeable Urns

Biodegradable Water and Earth Burial Urns

Cremation is starting to outnumber burials here in the US.  While there are environmental concerns regarding cremation, it is often cheaper than the embalming/burial route.  While we wait for alternatives such as alkaline hydrolysis, promession, and composting to become readily available, flame cremation continues to be a popular choice.

Water Biodegradable Urns

Our water biodegradable urns are specifically designed to float briefly and sink gracefully. They are sustainably produced in a variety of natural materials, including recycled paper, rock salt, gelatin and sand. Although they were designed for water burial, all of these urns can also be used for earth burial.

 

Earth Biodegradable Urns

Earth burial biodegradable urns are designed to degrade over time, depending on the material chosen and environmental conditions. Generally, the more moisture in the soil, the quicker the urn will biodegrade, although several other factors including burial depth and general health of the soil must also be considered. Many of these urns can also be used for either temporary or long-term storage of cremated remains. Please read the individual product details to help you decide which urn will meet your needs.
