These urns are made of sand and gel combination with no animal products and are designed to dissolve completely in water, a stylish design that is perfect for a water burial, the urns have holes in the bottom to allow water to enter quickly so that they gracefully sink when placed into water.
The ashes will be contained in bag that will also disintegrate, this bag goes inside the urn. The Classic Biodegradable Water Urn will hold the ashes of one person.
*The duration the urn will float for is variable. It is down to the weight of the ashes, the water conditions and the height from the urn is dropped.
You can drop these urns from a height. They won’t break on the surface of the water, but will sink straight away. We know because we have tested them from around 6ft.
As there are no animal products used in the gelatin bonding agent, as such they are ideal for Hindu and Sikh ceremonies
We provide glue to seal the lid, although simply moistening the lid where it comes into contact with the base will be enough to create a seal
They are also suitable for land burial as moisture in the soil will help the urn to biodegrade.
