The Shell Biodegradable Urn - Aqua
is in a seashell-shape that is intended for use in a water burial. Once placed adrift in a lake or ocean, the Shell Biodegradable Urn in Aqua
will float for a few precious moments, sink, and then naturally break down over time to release the ashes into the water. This biodegradable urn comes in a custom-made recyclable carrying case that allows families to transport the urn in a discreet, private manner.
The Shell Biodegradable Urn in Aqua
for ashes is made from recycled paper and individually hand painted in attractive shades of blue with water-based paints. With a capacity of 400 cubic inches, the Shell Urn can hold the ashes of two people who together weighed less than 400 lbs.
How it works: A water-soluble bag is included when you receive the Shell Urn. The ashes should be placed into this bag. The bag, in turn, is placed within the urn using a small access opening on the back. This opening can then be sealed with the biodegradable sealant provided. Families can store the urn in this manner until ready for the water burial ceremony.
The Shell Urn received a "Three Leaf" Green Burial Council rating.
