Water Biodegradable Urns

Water Biodegradable Urns

The Passages® Collection of water burial urns is designed for biodegradable placement of cremated remains in water. The urns will float briefly to allow a final farewell before gracefully sinking. The length of time each urn takes to sink depends on the urn, the weight of cremated remains and local water conditions. The urns are designed to biodegrade quickly and naturally once placed in water, some in as little as 4 hours.

Federal and local regulations must be followed when placing an urn at sea (no closer than 3 nautical miles from shore).

If multiple family members or loved ones want to participate in scattering, or create their own small memorials, mini, or keepsake-size urns allow these options. Individual urn descriptions will note if they are also available in a smaller size.

Although they were designed for water burial, some of these urns, such as the Salt Urn, can also be used for earth burial.

No trees are cut down to produce these urns and since most are crafted by hand from natural and sustainable materials, they may vary slightly in size, shape and appearance. Each urn comes with a water soluble bag into which the cremated remains must be placed.
