The Memento Urn for biodegradable water burial allows families to create a unique, meaningful and participatory ceremony by placing personal notes into the urn prior to placing it at sea. Twenty handmade paper notecards are included with each urn, and the surface of the urn itself can be written on.
The urn is crafted by hand on antique molds from non-toxic, recycled food-grade paper and is hand painted using environmentally-friendly water-based paints. The urn is designed to float briefly before sinking, and biodegrades naturally over time. The Memento Urn is packaged in a recyclable box for discreet and convenient transportation.
Our Memento Urns are made by hand and will vary in appearance. Some are painted in small batches, sometimes with hand-mixed paint colors. These urns meet federal regulations requiring all containers used for burials at sea be 100% biodegradable. Check with local agencies to ensure that you are following all appropriate federal and local guidelines or regulations, such as distance from the shore.
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.
