Paper Turtle Urn


Biodegradable Paper Turtles that are hand-crafted from recycled paper using non-toxic glues.

SKU: TurtleUrn Category:


The turtle is a symbol of longevity, endurance, persistence, and the continuation of life.  These unique Biodegradable Paper Turtles are hand-crafted from recycled paper using non-toxic glues and are designed to float briefly before sinking. The time that the turtle takes to sink will depend on the weight of remains inside and local water conditions. Once the turtle sinks, it will biodegrade naturally over time.  Since the turtles are crafted by hand, the size, shape and color of each may vary.

Produced in North America by skilled artisans. The purchase of a turtle contributes to the preservation of a traditional local art form, and the artists producing these beautiful turtles are paid a fair wage in local workshop environments.

Turtle Urns are made by hand and will vary in appearance. These urns meet federal regulations requiring all containers used for burials at sea be 100% biodegradable. Federal regulations also require that burial occurs no closer than 3 nautical miles from shore.
