Consider Biodegradable Urns in Keeping Your Loved One’s Memories Alive

When you're thinking about your loved one's final resting place, it can be hard to think of the environment and consider going for Biodegradable Urns. Of course, you want to give them a beautiful memorial that honors their life, but you also want to be sure that you're being a good steward of the planet.

That's why we recommend choosing an urn that degrades naturally in the ecosystem—without leaving any trace of a carbon footprint.

Wood, paper, bamboo, and other plant-based materials are ideal for crafting biodegradable urns that can decompose naturally over time. However, depending on the type of material selected for crafting your urn, it could take months or even years to decompose once fully buried in soil.

Families who prefer land burial should consider using biodegradable urns to maintain environmental stewardship while also giving a unique memorial to their departed loved ones!

Why consider Biodegradable Urns?

*It is symbolic of coming back to the creator through nature. Biodegradable Urns are made of different biodegradable materials, including those that can dissolve when submerged in water, or buried on the ground—allowing the departed to be returned to nature.

*It is a unique way to remember your loved one. Unlike traditional metal, ceramic urns, biodegradable urns are a unique way of remembering and honouring your loved one. 

*Biodegradable urns are perfect for families who prefer land burials because they are environmentally friendly and will not leave traces of a carbon footprint on the earth once buried.

Aside from Biodegradable Land Burial Urns, Sea Burial Urns are also a good option. 

Saying farewell to your loved ones by the sea or river is best when you have the right urn for sea burials. Similar to land burials, biodegradable urns are fit to use as such compositions are adept in descending gracefully to the depths where they will gently release ashes and biodegrade completely within one to two days.

You can also choose from different types of sea burial urns such as those made from bamboo, metal or plastic. Suppose you're looking for something more traditional. In that case, there are also wooden urns that serve as a suitable alternative for a land burial but still allow for scattering ashes at sea.
