This is a Bios Urn, a completely biodegradable urn that contains a single tree seed. 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!
So which would you prefer; leaving behind a tree or a tombstone?
How amazing is this!? Makes a whole lot of sense to me! We don’t have all this available land for more graves so we might as well give a little back to planet earth and what better way to do it than donating a tree from your own ashes. Lovely stuff….. Instead of sitting talking to a tombstone you can water a tree and have the same conversation; one difference though; you can see the tree growing bigger and bigger, life continues…..
