Why choose engraving?
Engraving your memorial helps to permanently identify the urn. Personalization helps make the memorial for your loved one personal and unique.

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.
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.
