The Living Urn ~ a time to reflect on 2018 and a look forward into 2019

As 2018 comes to a close, we wanted to take this time to thank you for your support. The amazing feedback and stories we continue to receive inspire and motivate our team each and every day. The Living Urn reached tens of thousands of families this year and we’re grateful that we’re able to provide this truly uplifting option that gives back and honors the ones who have been so special in our lives. 

Here are a few of the many stories shared by families this year...

2018 was an eventful and productive year for us...

  • We acquired the Element Urns line, which includes proprietary eco-friendly water urns, scattering urns and burial urns. This only adds to the uplifting memorial options we’re able to offer families to create that perfect memorial of their loved one

  • Received a U.S. Patent on The Living Urn and filed additional patent applications for The Living Urn and all of our other products – exciting milestones that took years to achieve

  • Donated to plant thousands of trees in America’s forests as part of our Reforestation Program where a 2nd tree is planted for Living Urn planted – together with our customers, doubling the impact of trees and helping with critical reforestation efforts!

  • Donated hundreds of bamboo tubes that were filled with trees and given to children at an elementary school in Ontario, Canada to celebrate the life of a student who tragically passed and to plant in his memory

  • Our international reach expanded into new markets, including Australia, New Zealand, France, the U.K., the Netherlands, and a number of countries in South America where families can now enjoy the beauty of a Living Urn tree memorial of a loved one

  • Added many new funeral home partners throughout the U.S. who are now offering The Living Urn in the communities they serve and we enjoyed meeting and spending time with many of these new funeral home partners throughout the year

  • Expanded our production space in Colorado and increased our Denver-based customer service staff to help process the growing number of customer inquiries and orders

  • Launched The Living Urn Indoors / Patio product line which has been extremely well received by families as well as by our funeral home partners. This product is an excellent choice for families that do not have a place to plant an outdoor tree. We currently offer five different tree / bonsai options and plan to add more in 2019

  • Had many successful plantings at Memory Forests during the year and plan to significantly expand Memory Forest in 2019, providing families that don’t already have a special or permanent place to plant with even more options

More exciting developments to be announced in 2019...

This includes the launch of some new and innovative cremation urns, the expansion of Memory Forest providing more wonderful locations to have your loved one’s tree memorial planted and cared for, and further expansion in Europe and other markets worldwide.

Thank you again for your continued support! We wish you and your family all the best in 2019.
