Eco Scattering Urn - an all natural, eco-friendly urn made entirely from bamboo, a sustainable resource. This beautiful urn is the leading scattering urn of choice for funeral homes and provides for a dignified memorial.
Eco Water Urn - this special urn is 100% biodegradable and is made from recycled plant materials. It floats upright (like a buoy) for up to a few minutes, until the bottom separates and the ashes are freed in the water. It comes packaged in a sleek bamboo cylinder container, which helps to safely take the urn holding a loved one's ashes to that special place to scatter.
Flow, the Ice Urn - a highly unique urn made entirely from ice. This stunning memorial urn floats gracefully on top of the water and gradually frees the remains of a loved one, returning the ashes to nature in the most ecologically pure way.
