The Small Journey Biodegradable Urn in Natural honors a loved one in a respectful, earth-friendly manner. This small biodegradable urn for ashes is designed to be filled with a small amount of ashes and placed in a lake or ocean. It will float briefly and then sink gracefully to the bottom. After a period of time, as the paper is saturated, the urn will release the ashes into the water.
How it works: A portion of the loved one’s ashes are placed in a water soluble bag (included) and then inserted into the side of the Journey Earthurn Biodegradable Urn. The urn folds closed and is secured with a paper wrap until the family is ready for the water (or earth) burial.
This smaller size Journey biodegradable urn is typically used when families wish to divide the ashes or when the loved one’s wishes were to have a portion of his/her ashes scattered at a special place.
This urn can be personalized with two lines of text and/or artwork laser-engraved into the paper band that wraps around the urn.
The naturally-colored, organic paper of the urn has a flecked texture and includes bits of fiber derived from sustainably collected mulberry bark. Given that it is a handcrafted piece, the mini urn will show variation and may slightly differ in size, shape, and appearance from the image displayed.
