This handmade urn is crafted with natural materials that will biodegrade naturally over time. It makes for a wonderful send off that can be personalized with items like written messages, photographs, or other natural materials like wood, ceramic, glass, paper etc.

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly urn, this item ticks all the boxes. It acts as a vessel that is released in water where it will sink and distribute your loved one's ashes underwater.

It is crafted by skilled artisans using plant-based glue and recycled paper, and you have a choice between five color choices. It has the capacity of 200 cubic inches, which enough to hold the ashes of a person that weighed approx 200 pounds.

How long does the urn take to sink?

These urns are designed to float for around 5-15 min, however float time will depend on specific water and weather conditions. Also keep in mind that these urns are designed for the complete ashes of one adult. Therefore only including a partial amount of ashes may result in longer float time.

Shipping Times

The urn is shipped (USPS Priority) 1-2 business days after the order is placed. If you're in a rush and need the urn by a certain date, please contact us on 850-846-882 to see if we can accommodate your request.
