Environment-conscious mourners or family members prefer cremation because this is safer for the environment. They also opt to use biodegradable urns for the ashes of their departed loved ones. While some use biodegradable urns to display at home, others choose to scatter the ashes of their loved ones and have the urn decomposed over time. A few don’t scatter the ashes but choose to bury them along with the urn.
They believe that the remains of the deceased should return to nature. This makes biodegradable urns an excellent cremation urn for people who care deeply about the environment.
Biodegradable urns, also known as eco-urns, are 100% made of natural materials and, therefore, are very safe. There are also different types of these kinds of urns, and you can always choose which one you prefer best. As mentioned earlier, there are biodegradable urns for home display, and there are also urns for land burial. Interestingly, sea burial eco-urns also exist.
1. Home Display Biodegradable Urn
Home display urns can usually be made of wood or clay. This way, they can last longer but are still natural and will still decompose over time. One example of this is the Roman Treasure Clay Cremation Ashes Urn.
