The Eco Water Urn is 100% all natural and biodegradable. The urn itself is made from recycled plant materials and cellulose using only water, heat and pressure and without any glues or binding agents. The casing is made entirely from beautiful bamboo. Bamboo is a sustainable resource and happens to be one of the most environmentally friendly building materials on the planet!
Although it is biodegradable, it will not biodegrade unless it is placed in the water. Therefore, it can be used for a water burial right away or it can be used as a regular urn to hold ashes for as many years as you like before eventually freeing the remains in nature. After use, you can keep the bamboo case as keepsake or repurpose for other uses if you like.
The Eco Water Urn BioUrn® is designed to hold as much or as little of one set of ashes (size of 225 cu. in.). It is large enough to hold all of a person’s ashes, but you may also include just a portion. This is the case when families split up the remains among family and friends or if they simply want use the remains for different urns or keepsakes. Our instructions explain any adjustments to make when including different amounts.
The bamboo surface engraves beautifully! Our special engraving equipment uses a laser to engrave the bamboo with names, dates, symbols, and a special personal message.
You also have the option to write special and messages on the surface of the Eco Water Urn with a marker or crayons to add a personal touch.
