Biodegradable Water Burial
The Bio Shell Urn is perfect for water burial. It is engineered to float for 3 to 5 minutes before gracefully descending. Once on the ocean floor it will break down naturally. Federal regulations state that the burial of cremated remains in or on ocean waters "shall take place no closer than 3 nautical miles from land."

Original Artwork By Todd Telander
Telander is an international scientific illustrator and artist who has produced work for numerous zoos and aquariums, wildlife and ocean conservation groups, and is a selected artist of the American Birding Association. Telander coupled his background in biology and environmental studies with his artistry to create original artwork for the Shell Bio Urns that is both scientifically accurate and beautiful.

The Environment
This Biodegradable Cremation Urn is manufactured with the environment in mind. The tree bark used to make the paper is harvested from the mulberry tree in such a way that the tree continues to grow, undamaged. This sustainable process is centuries old and ensures the preservation of ancient forests.
Once the bark of the tree is harvested, it is soaked until soft and then laid out on to bamboo screens. The screens are then placed in the sun to dry. The resulting paper is used to make beautiful and environmentally-friendly urns.

Aqua Shell Biodegradale Urn

Reviewed By: Sunny Collard on 01/08/2010

This was the most beautiful way to sent my father back to Florida from MI where my parents resided most of their retirement years. We took the family and the urn, already prepared to be set afloat, with the family members. When the boat reached the place where it was permissable by law to set it afloat, all the family members watched and said a prayer, while other people on the boat were up top watching. It did take longer than 5 minutes, but my dad always had a motto "He's not going because he's not ready yet" We had a lovely dinner clebration after the releasing of the shell and wonderful sunset pictures on Lake MI as a keepsake.

Puget Sound Burial

Reviewed By: Diane McMullin on 07/04/2013

This urn is so lovely. We used it at our daughter's funeral and then took it to Puget Sound where she wanted to be with the whales she loved so much. Family and friends threw roses and stood silently watching the urn glisten on the water and then slowly disappear. Everyone said this was the most powerful experience they've ever had.

More than I expected

Reviewed By: Claudia Johnson on 08/23/2013

I just now opened the carton and what a wonderful choice I have made. Since I want to include the love of my life, my Bichon Frise Winston with me, the shell is the perfect size and I know that my family will be pleased when it come time for them to use it .

Thank you for making this available, as the bio urns offered by the folks who are arranging my cremation did not have this in their catalog.

I am more than pleased and will be sure to not only recommend your site, but I will showing this urn to my friends who are also planning cremation.
