Protection of the environment is a subject that is close to the hearts of many of us. Biodegradable urns help to address this issue. Biodegradable urns provide a secure, dignified and environmentally friendly approach to scattering cremated remains over land and out at sea. The nontoxic material out of which each biodegradable urn is constructed will fully decompose over a short space of time. This allows the cremated remains contained within biodegradable urns to be gently released into nature in a non-intrusive process.
A biodegradable urn offers the opportunity to give something back to our planet. The very act of scattering cremated remains disseminates into nature the nutrients and minerals locked up inside our loved one's ashes. Using biodegradable urns can be a very humbling experience. The many people who choose to use biodegradable urns often feel like they are making a positive contribution to the natural circle of life, even more so than if they were to scatter the cremated remains from a non-biodegradable urn.
Scattering cremated remains at sea is something that an increasing number of bereaved are choosing to do. Recognizing the need to maintain a sense of dignity and honor in this process biodegradable urn manufacturers now offer biodegradable urns that fully degrade in the sea after 2 - 3 days. There are several different designs of biodegradable urns suitable for this purpose. One of the most popular biodegradable urns available online for sea burials is a biodegradable urn in the shape of a shell. These types of biodegradable urn initially float on the surface of the water before gracefully descending to the sea floor, releasing the cremated remains from a water soluble bag inside the biodegradable urn on its descent.
Whether the final resting place chosen for your loved one's cremated remains is in the soil of the earth or out at sea, biodegradable urns bring a level of control and respectability to the occasion. Cremated remains in all biodegradable urns are sealed within a biodegradable bag, preventing the ashes from being blown around on a windy day. All in all, biodegradable urns enable the bereaved to seek closure in a respectful manner that is faithful to the mood of the occasion.
