Our Biodegradable Round Sand Burial Urn is designed in an attractive modern round shape with decorative accent encircling the urn. Sustainably produced, these eco-friendly urns are designed for alternative burial methods such as water or ground burial. Using a combination of actual beach sand and natural, vegetable-based gelatin, our sand cremation urns are made in an aesthetically pleasing sphere which is completely biodegradable. The sand urn is coated on the exterior surface with real natural sand, to help you treasure a "wave" of ocean memories with your loved one.
Each of our biodegradable sand urns comes with a biodegradable, water-soluble plastic bag which will hold the remains. Additionally, these burial urns are shipped in a box with custom protective packaging that provides your family with a convenient and discreet option for transportation. The box (and urn) will pass through airport security screenings and can fit in the overhead compartment of most commercial airliners.
For water burial service, consider adding packets of our Memorial Flower Petals for family members to participate in the service - select options above.
