The Memento Biodegradable Urn in White is not only a perfect choice for a green burial but also presents new options for a meaningful ceremony as handwritten notes or drawings can be placed within the urn and the urn itself can be left plain or adorned with personal messages or decorations.
The urn is handcrafted of paper and is painted with milk paints to create a soft white color. Included with each urn are twenty handmade paper note cards that family members or friends can use to prepare personal notes that can be inserted in a slot in the top of the urn.
Once placed in water, the Memento Biodegradable Cremation Urn will float briefly, then sink, and ultimately biodegrade in the water naturally over time. Each Memento Biodegradable Urn arrives packaged in an eco-friendly box that gives you a discreet and easy way to transport the urn. The packaging box can be recycled. A water-soluble bag is included. Cremated remains must be placed into the bag, then into the Memento Biodegradable Urn. Opening needs to be sealed with small amount of biodegradable glue after cremated remains (enclosed in bag) have been placed inside.
Included with the urn is a memorial donation card. If you complete the card, the Memento Biodegradable Urn’s manufacturer will make a donation in memory of your loved one to The Ocean Conservancy. The mission of The Ocean Conservancy is to protect ocean ecosystems and conserve the global abundance and diversity of marine wildlife.
