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.

Very happy!

Reviewed By: Rouns on 08/07/2011

I wanted a large biodegradable urn to hold two people. Weight for both was about 320 lbs, and there was still plenty of room, so we also added 2 dogs ashes to fill the urn. I was concerned that it would be so heavy/full that it wouldn't float. The urn and ashes weighed 20 lbs. and to my surprise it floated exactly as described. It was just perfect.

Coral Oyster Shell Urn

Reviewed By: Richard J Galus on 04/21/2010

This is a idea that matched my wife's personality. A perfect vehicle for burial at sea. Please continue to develop other urns for people that want this type of burial. Perhaps a Sailing Ship, Sea Horse, Dolphin Etc

Very Pleased

Reviewed By: Joanne Taveira on 09/01/2010

The 'shell' was everything I had hoped....Delivery was on time, well-packaged, and it floated for 5 minutes and slowly waved down - just exactly as advertised....I am so glad that my sister's ashes could be sent to the sea in such a manner....

Wonderful Tribute

Reviewed By: Deborah on 09/24/2012

What a wonderful way to say "goodbye" to our parents. Just before the urn sunk to the bottom of the ocean it rocked back and forth a couple of times as if to wave goodbye and then turned on it's side and slowly headed downward.
The entire family walked away with a peaceful feeling knowing we gave them the perfect send off to a wonderful life.

Shell Urn

Reviewed By: Bruce Martin on 03/23/2016

The Shell Urn looked exactly like the picture...very beautiful! They vastly underestimated the time it would take to sink. We ended up leaving it while it was still floating after 30 minutes! Head their advice and presoak it or add some extra holes. Also, the biodegradable glue was insufficient to seal the urn. The cutout had warped a bit and didn't fit back into the shell. A little elmers glue was able to seal it up nicely.
