The Biodegradable Ocean Sand Adult Cremation Urn is a water burial cremation urn that allows families to create a unique, meaningful and participatory ceremony at sea. The urn is produced using sustainable materials to create an attractive and environmentally-friendly alternative. Each urn is hand-crafted by skilled artisans and has real beach sand (or crushed quartz) applied to the outer surface of the urn. The urns have holes in the bottom, allowing water to enter quickly so that the urn floats briefly and then gracefully sinks.
Each urn includes a biodegradable bag into which the cremated remains are placed. No glue is required to seal the urn. Simply remove the lid, carefully moisten the inside lip and replace the lid. It will seal itself.
Each urn is shipped in a box with custom protective packaging that provides families with a convenient and discreet option for transportation. The box (and urn) will pass through airport security screenings and can fit in the overhead compartment of most commercial airliners.
When buried in the ground, the urn will biodegrade within three months. Once placed in water, the urn will break down within three days.
