Eco News #49 – Bios Urn

March 19th, 2013

New, interesting alternative for traditional burying was found. 🙂

bios urn
This is a Bios Urn, a completely biodegradable urn that contains a single tree seed and ashes after cremation. When planted, the tree seed is nourished by and absorbs the nutrients from the ashes. The urn itself is made from coconut shell and contains compacted peat and cellulose. The ashes are mixed with this, and the seed placed inside. You can even choose which type of tree you’d like to grow!

If you someone loves nature, that’s the interesting way for a funeral.
So, which tree would you choose and why? 😉
