Eco-Friendly biodegradable urns

In response to the growing concerns for the environment, people worldwide and businesses in every industry have searched for ways to go green. Whether that’s riding a bicycle to and from work, opting for a hybrid car, or implementing more reusable materials into the household, we’ve seen increasingly creative ways to better care for our fragile environment.

The funeral industry is no different. Traditional burials are known to have a detrimental environmental impact, thanks to the chemicals used in embalming practices, as well as lacquered caskets and heavily manicured burial plots. Consumers are taking environmental considerations into account when choosing ways in which to honor the memories of their loved ones. Many have opted for biodegradable urns to store the ashes of their loved ones or their pets.

What Are Biodegradable Urns?

Biodegradable urns are traditional urns that hold the cremains of the deceased after the process of cremation. However, instead of materials that do not break down over time, such as marble, glass, stainless steel, or ceramic, biodegradable urns will disintegrate over time. Today, you’ll find a wide range of eco-friendly urns in a variety of materials, including biodegradable paper, recycled plant materials, sand, Himalayan salt, gelatin, and clay.

Why Choose an Eco-Friendly Urn?/

Many of our customers choose biodegradable urns to lessen the impact of their loved one’s final resting place on the environment. When buried, submerged in a lake, or tossed in the sea, the sustainable materials will break down with the earth or water over time, leaving no trace or residue that will affect the environments around them.

Biodegradable Urns for Ashes

Eco-friendly cremation urns are no less beautiful and meaningful than their non-biodegradable counterparts. There are so many different styles, shapes, and designs of biodegradable urns available today, and it is easy to tailor these cremation urns to your loved one’s interests. You may opt for a biodegradable scattering tube with an ocean sunset theme, a stunning mountain scene, or one that reflects the love of a particular sport, such as golf or boxing. Some of our eco-friendly urns can be personalized with an engraving, which makes them even more special.

What Do I Do with Biodegradable Urns

These types of urns are just as versatile as traditional, non-biodegradable urns. Some of our customers choose to display these urns for a short time before scattering the ashes or adding them to their final resting places. Because they’re so lovely to look at, you can add them to a unique niche in your home that you’ve set up as a memorial to your friend, family member, or pet. When you’re ready, you can then bury the biodegradable urn or opt to have a scattering ceremony or a special memorial service that will honor the deceased. There are no rules about how you should handle the dissemination of the cremains. What’s important is that you take your time, make a plan, and do what you’re most comfortable with in your time of loss.
