Water or earth biodegradable urns can be chosen for burial or scattering.
Since they are crafted by hand from natural and sustainable materials, each may vary slightly in size, shape and appearance.
Water Biodegradable Urns are designed specifically for burial at sea and will float briefly before sinking gracefully. They are sustainably produced with a variety of natural materials, including recycled paper, rock salt, gelatin and sand. The length of time each urn takes to sink depends on the urn, the weight of cremated remains and local water conditions. The urns are designed to biodegrade quickly and naturally once placed in water, some in as little as 4 hours. These urns meet federal regulations requiring all containers used for burials at sea be 100% biodegradable. Check with local agencies to ensure that you are following all appropriate federal and local guidelines or regulations, such as distance from the shore.
Earth 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. This collection of urns is suitable for scattering, biodegradable burial or the temporary storage of cremated remains.
