The Passages® Biodegradable Paper Turtles are crafted by hand from recycled paper using non-toxic glues. The purchase of a turtle will contribute to the preservation of a traditional local art form. The skilled artisans producing these beautiful turtles are paid a fair wage in local workshop environments.

The turtles are available in two sizes. The larger size will accommodate the cremated remains of a large dog and the smaller “mini” turtle will accommodate up to two or three tablespoons of cremated remains.

The turtles are designed to float briefly before sinking. The time that the turtle takes to sink will depend on the weight of remains inside and local water conditions. Once the turtle sinks, it will biodegrade naturally over time.

The mini turtles are available in Natural and Newsprint, while the large turtle is only available in Natural. Since the turtles are crafted by hand, the size, shape and color of each may vary. Newsprint turtles will vary considerably in appearance and will contain legible newspaper print.

Produced in Mexico by skilled artisans.
