Journey Earthurns are hand-crafted from sustainably produced, biodegradable paper. When placed in water they float briefly then sink to the bottom, where they break down naturally over time. The urns are shipped fully assembled and are available in 12 colors and designs. Matching mini sizes are available for all designs, perfect as keepsakes or to separate cremated remains into multiple water-biodegradable containers. The Green, Natural, Aqua, Navy, Embossed Fern and Embossed Pearl designs are also available in a medium size that holds 180 cubic inches.
Our Journey Earthurns are made by hand and will vary in appearance. 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.
