This Natural biodegradable paper box cremation urn is made of handmade paper. A green fitted band adorns the outside of the urn. This urn also comes with an interior biodegradable black box. These urns are suitable for ground burial or displaying in your home. Biodegradable bag not included. Due to the nature of this handmade product, color and paper pattern may slightly vary.

Optional artwork may also be engraved on the front of the urn. (See artwork options above and poem options below)

Why choose engraving?
Engraving your memorial helps to permanently identify the urn. Personalization helps make the memorial for your loved one personal and unique. Some cemetaries can require direct engraving for identifcation purposes. In the incident of being misplaced or lost the engraving can help return the memorial back to it's proper location.

How long will engraving take?
Our engraving is done extremely fast by our skilled engravers. If a ground order is placed before 12:00pm Central Standard Time the urn is generally engraved and shipped the same business day. For expedited or rush orders we make every effort possible to ship same day even after 12:00pm. We encourage calling our customer care line at 1-800-979-8767 if rush engraving is needed after 12:00pm so we can make special arrangements for you.

The urn meets the standards of the Transportation Security Administration and can pass through gate-side security and be carried onboard an airplane.

Biodegradable Ground Burial
These biodegradable urns are fabricated by hand from recycled and eco-friendly paper which breaks down naturally when buried. They are durable, with no "shelf life" and will NOT begin to biodegrade until they are buried in the ground.

The Environment
Earthurns are 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 where floral materials are inlaid by hand. The screens are then placed in the sun to dry. The resulting paper is used to make beautiful and environmentally-friendly urns.

Choose Poem

Losing You
Our hearts still ache in sadness,
And secret tears still flow,
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know

Never Forget
Your presence we miss
Your memories we treasure
Loving you always
Forgetting you never

Butterflies to Heaven
If butterflies could fly to Heaven
they would bring my love to you
and yours right back to me

Forever in My Heart
Gone, yet not forgotten
Although we are apart
Your spirit lives within me
Forever in my heart

When Someone You Love
When someone you love
becomes a memory,
the memory becomes a treasure

No Farewell Words
No farewell words were spoken,
no time to say goodbye, you were
gone before we knew it,
and only God knows why

Those We Have Held
Those we have held
in our arms for a little while,
we hold in our hearts forever

Perhaps the Stars
Perhaps the stars in the sky,
are loved ones letting us know they are near,
by guiding us through the night

If Love Could Have Saved You
If love could have
saved you, you would
have lived forever

If Tears Could Build a Stairway
If tears could build a stairway
and memories a lane
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you home again

Reviewed By: sandy on 03/31/2011

I recently purchased a biodegradable urn from Perfect Memorials and it was much more than I had expected. This is going to hold my husbands remains until we scatter the ashes and I did not want "just a box" When I opened it I could not help but cry because it is so beautiful and perfect for him. It is sturdy and handmade and the finishing touch with the band around it is just what I would have chosen. Thank you so much for helping to make this difficult step so much easier!

This biodegradable box was perfect for our Burial at Sea. I had to keep it in my carryon luggage & the size was perfect. I did not get it engraved but instead wrote a message on it & all my mother's friends signed it before the ceremony.

Nice box, but color is not as pictured

Reviewed By: D.W. on 12/06/2016

My family purchased this box to bury my father's remains. When it arrived two days before the burial service, I was taken aback by the color, which I would describe as pistachio green than the natural linen/off-white color from the photo. I never would have guessed that a product described as "natural" would be a kind of bright green color rather than a linen color. I was very worried how my mother would react, but with all of the other funeral planning going on, she thankfully decided it wasn't worth getting upset over.

As for the quality of the box, it seemed very nice and well-made. Everything fit together nicely, and I liked how it came with an inner box to go inside the exterior box. I would have given it 5 stars if the color from the photo matched what we received.
