Families may wish to place a portion of the ashes of a loved one in a lake or ocean. The Small Journey Biodegradable Urn in Aqua is a well-designed urn for this purpose. This paper urn for ashes will hold the ashes, allow for easy placement in the water (no ashes blowing), then will float, sink gracefully, and break down naturally over time.
How does it work? A portion of ashes are placed into a water soluble bag (included), and then into the Small Journey Biodegradable Urn in Aqua. The urn folds closed and is secured with a paper wrap until the family is ready for the water (or earth) burial.
The biodegradable paper is flecked and has a soft blue tint with the texture of natural, handmade paper. This urn can be personalized with two lines of text and/or artwork laser-engraved into the paper band that wraps around the urn.
Given that this urn is made of handmade paper, it may vary slightly in size, shape, and appearance from the image displayed. No trees are destroyed to produce this urn.
