Bios Urn is more than an urn: it’s a catalyst for Life

The Bios Urn® is the world’s first biodegradable urn that allows you to plant and grow a tree or a flowering plant using the ashes of your loved ones, humans and pets. It’s entirely eco-friendly, so you can plant it outdoors in your garden or a plant pot inside your home.

The Bios Urn has no expiration date so that you can use it with recent or old ashes anytime.

The Bios Urn is a beautiful and meaningful way to honour loved ones by transforming their ashes into a living tree. This creates a lasting tribute that symbolizes new life, growth, and hope.

It has two parts: a top capsule with the proper medium to allow the perfect growth of the seedling and a bottom cone where you can place the ashes. The design of the Bios Urn enables the seedling to grow separated from the ashes. Once the urn starts decomposing, the tree roots are already strong enough to contact the ashes and grow through the Bios Urn. Bios Urn is ready for use with any local indigenous seedling from a tree or plant and is suitable for humans and pets.

The Bios Urn has been designed to hold all the ashes resulting from the cremation process, and its capacity is 5.8 lbs or 2.5 Litres.
You can use all the ashes or just a portion. The Bios Urn can be used with any amount.

Due to Australia’s quarantine laws, diverse country landscapes and climatic conditions, the Bios Urn arrives with a grow medium replacing the expansion disc and no seed. On request, at Soul Trees, we can supply any Australian Premium Quality seed of your choice. 

However, we recommend seedlings that can be easily purchased at any local Nursery.
