The creators of Bios Urn see death as a catalyst for new life, and with their eco-friendly product, the remains of a loved one can help fertilise a tree to bring a living organism into the world. Using 100% biodegradable materials, they’ve produced a special capsule that contains a seed, soil, and vermiculite positioned on top of the deceased’s ashes. The urn is filled, components mixed together, closed, and planted.
Bios Urn allows a unique type of mourning. Instead of visiting a tombstone, the grieving can plant the urn and know that it will benefit the Earth by becoming a home for birds and furry creatures. It can also be a place where the living enjoy outdoor activities while shaded by their loved ones. Here, they can create new memories to last the rest of their lifetime.
