Biodegradable Urns for Sea Burial

Biodegradable urns are appropriate for family who do not wish to see the cremains disperse in the ocean. This may be for a variety of reasons such as personal preference, aesthetics or religious beliefs. Some religious beliefs prefer for the cremains to be kept together – not scattered. The use of a biodegradable urn can help with this.

Biodegradable urns come in a variety of shape, sizes and are made from materials such as paper materials, other salt, sand, gelatin etc. Some are more appropriate in specific instances than others and we will be happy to help you select the one that is best for you. There are many decision to be made regarding ash scattering process. As well there are many benefits to scattering ashes at sea.

Regardless of the urn selected it is designed to degrade completely and this environmentally friendly. Some urns degrade faster than others but all should degrade with 24 hr.

Not all biodegradable urns may be appropriate the be placed in the water. Some urns are only intended for land user, so be sure you have the appropriate type of urn if your intention is to do a burial at sea. It is not uncommon for families to bring the wrong type of urn on the yacht if they did not purchased the urn from us.
