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.

Burial at Sea

Reviewed By: C. Newton on 04/30/2010

I can't tell you what this seashell had done for my husband's burial at sea. He was always by the sea, from birth to his death. This seashell was above and beyond my expections. His "place" in the sea, was marked on a GPS, and when I die, my ashes will be put in "his" spot.

Reviewed By: Chrissy on 07/29/2011

The shell provided a wonderful way for us to bury our grandparents/parents in the water in a peaceful way. We all were able to put notes inside as part of the service by adding a slit on top (though you could put notes in the urn prior to sealing it too).The children scattered rose petals in the water and the effect was beautiful. I would reccommend buying a second biodegradable bag (for te inside) if you are using this as a companion urn. We were going to just scatter the ashes, but were very grateful we used this instead.

Beautiful sail-away

Reviewed By: Maureen on 01/02/2019

The urn was beautiful and the perfect sail away for my parents. The bag included was large enough to hold the combined ashes of both my parents, as they had wished. We played guitars, sang their favorite songs, and set them to sail with scattered flowers from their yard several miles off the Gulf beach where they lived. The shell drifted about 10 minutes before sinking away, at which time three dolphins appeared! It was awesome. I highly recommend this product. Thanks

Paddle Out

Reviewed By: Dave on 09/11/2015

This was a wonderful and beautiful way to release my Dads ashes. He was a surfer for 75 years. This was even better than expected. The packaging was perfect when it arrived. The carry box made it easy for travel. And we brought ithe Clam Shell with the ashes out on a sailing vessel then joined the paddle out of surfers...3 dolphins swam into the area where everyone tossed their Rose Petals and orchid leis....exactly how my father would have wanted. Thank you!

Sand Shell

Reviewed By: Cherie on 08/19/2016

After spending a great deal of money on a product that was supposed to help me fulfill my mother's wishes, I was extremely disappointed. After following the directions and then placing the shell into the ocean, the shell never sank. After an hour of attempting to send my mother off, my husband had to finally tear it open so it would sink. The shell was beautiful but because it never sank on it's own, it made what should have been a comforting event into a fiasco. I do not recommend this product.
