The Living Urn System
The Living Urn® for People and The Living Urn® for Pets Bio Urn & Planting Systems include everything you need to plant and grow a beautiful memory tree, plant, or flowers from the cremated remains of a loved one.
How it Works
Step 1: Purchase Your Living Urn® and Select Your Seedling (or baby tree)
(or purchase the version of The Living Urn® without a seedling and simply pick up your favorite tree seedling, plant, or flowers at your local nursery)
Step 2: After you receive The Living Urn®, fill the Bio Urn with the cremated remains of your loved one (or, if you don't feel comfortable doing that, have your funeral home or crematorium (or veterinarian for pets) fill the Bio Urn with the remains)
Step 3: When your tree seedling arrives, follow the planting instructions provided with The Living Urn® to plant a living memory (or click here for an online version)
...pour our proprietary RootProtect™ ash neutralizing agent on top of the cremated remains; then, place the soil mix and wood chips on top of the neutralizing agent
...and plant - it's that simple!
A beautiful memory tree will then grow and keep your beloved family member's memory present in your life!
Our Commitment to the Environment
Our patent pending bio urn and planting system is comprised of only the highest quality eco-friendly materials and components. Our proprietary BioUrn® is 100% natural and biodegradable, made from recycled plant-derived materials using only water, heat and pressure and is completely free from glues or toxic binding agents. Even our outer shell packaging is handmade from natural bamboo, a sustainable resource. We take great pride in using only environmentally friendly materials and processes.
Seedling vs. Seed
While other product options may provide a tree seed with their urn, this method can be complicated and cumbersome. Seed germination can be a challenge and have a high failure rate. We feel strongly that successful tree growth is of paramount importance, and that our loved ones deserve the very best. For this reason, we take great pride that we provide only premium seedlings, or baby trees, which arrive at your doorstep directly from the Arbor Day Foundation's nursery and ready to be planted and grow successfully with the Living Urn®!
Premium Tree Seedlings
With each Living Urn® purchase you have the option to receive a premium Evergreen Tree Seedling (choose between a pine, spruce, or cypress) - this seedling will arrive at your doorstep directly from our nursery 3 to 5 business days after ordering.
If you want to choose from an expanded variety of trees, select a premium Seasonal Tree Seedling that will be shipped directly from the Arbor Day Foundation's nursery during the optimal growing time for the particular tree you select and the area it's being shipped to (typically in the spring or fall months). If you decide to plant a Seasonal Tree Seedling, simply store the cremated remains inside of the BioUrn® and place the urn in the natural bamboo container until the seedling arrives. Once it arrives, follow the easy to use instructions for successful planting and care.
