Bio Urns and Ocean Urns

I have had so many conversations with people who have organised cremations for their family.  Then they stall.  Knowing what to do with the ashes is the next difficult decision. I chatted with one lady who had two aunts, two parents and the beloved dog in jars in the pantry.

A Bio Urn could be a good option.

Bios Urn is much more than an urn — it’s a catalyst for life. It is made using 100% biodegradable materials, and is respectful to the environment in all the ways possible. Built with a special capsule that meets the needs of any type of tree, it’s the perfect medium to allow for the proper growth of a tree or plant when planted with the remains of your loved one.

Creating a living memorial, such as planting a tree, can be a profound way to honour someone who has died.

Create A Living Memory

It can be a symbol and anchor to reflect on a person’s life, the changing nature of grief and our relationship with the deceased.  It can also become a beautiful place of reflection and remembrance.

In The top part of the urn the seed is kept separate from the ashes. The tree grows in the upper compartment, until the urn itself begins to degrade. After time the entire set becomes part of the sub-soil and fertilizer for the tree.
When purchasing the Urna Bios you receive everything you will need for you or your loved one to become a tree. The parts come sperately in the one box until the urn is ready to be used. The ashes are then placed in the lower part of the urn and the seed in the top part with the soil.

Urna Bios recommend planting the urn in a forest surrounded by other trees and vegetation. It is also recommended that the right season is considered when planting and it is a good idea to replace the seed they provide you with either a small plant or sprout.

Perhaps this system isn’t for everyone but you must admit it really is putting the cycle back into the cycle of life.

For more information on the Urna Bios visit their website.

This is another site you can go to.  Bios urns.

There are also other urns called journey urns and floating urns for a water memorial – also known as:



The Journey Urns are perfect for ocean and deep water burial, they are engineered to float only momentarily and then gracefully sink. Once they have reached the bottom, they will break down natrually over time.

The Shell urns are engineered to floate for approximately 5 minutes before descending gracefully. These urns are individually hand painted and come with a protective carry case for convenient and discreet transportation.
