Biodegradable Urns

Biodegradable urns are a new item in burial urns. Use a biodegradable urn to deposit ashes in the sea or in a natural setting. This will prevent the wind from scattering the ashes and allow them to be placed exactly where you want them to go. The urn will then naturally degrade and be safe for the environment. Most of these urns are made from paper or light wood.

Select a shell shaped biodegradable urn for a fitting sea dispersion of cremated remains. It will float for a short while to allow flowers to be scattered with it and then sink to the bottom where it will disintegrate harmlessly. Other shapes are available.

There are many shapes and styles of biodegradable urns. Pick one that is a fitting tribute to your loved one for burial. Some include a place for a picture. When selecting a place to bury the urn check with local authorities for restrictions.
