To honor your loved one, you may choose to bury their ashes in the earth or opt for a sea or water burial. Biodegradable urns for ashes are suitable for these types of burials and come in a range of comforting and attractive options.

An advantage to choosing a biodegradable urn is that they are made of materials that will breakdown gradually, releasing cremated remains in a natural way back to the earth. Some eco urns are made of sand and resin, while others like the Himalayan Salt Biodegradable Cremation Urn are carved from a block of salt. The Earthurn Biodegradable Cremation Urns are made of paper using an ancient technique harvesting bark from the mulberry tree, a sustainable practice. The materials in the biodegradable cremation urns leave no trace after they have dissolved--whether in a water burial or ground burial.
