The Passages Collection of Cornstarch Urns is made from durable and environmentally-friendly cornstarch. They feature a secure “snap lock” closing mechanism that permanently closes the urn. The Urns can be kept at home, or placed in a cemetery niche or columbarium, since they will not biodegrade or deteriorate unless buried. When buried in earth, the urn will biodegrade completely over time. (The time taken to biodegrade will vary depending on local soil conditions).
Each Urn is hand painted and includes a biodegradable bag for the cremated remains to be placed in prior to closing the urn. Each urn comes in a convenient carry box that can be used for discreet transportation.
Passages® eco-friendly funeral products give families the opportunity to honor a loved one after their passing with a smaller environmental footprint. We believe that, especially when a person valued sustainability during their life, it is important to have the option for a greener end-of-life ritual. If cremation is chosen, our biodegradable urns offer a variety of options for ceremonies that return the cremated remains to the earth.
