Bios Urn® is the world’s first biodegradable urn that enables you to plant and grow a tree or a flowering plant using the ashes of all your loved ones, humans and pets. As the Bios Urn is 100% environmentally friendly, it can be planted outside in your garden or in a plant pot inside your home.
Bios Urn has no expiry date and you can use it whenever you are ready, with recent or old ashes.
What a meaningful way to honour all our loved ones’ lives!
It has two parts: a top capsule with the proper medium to allow a perfect growth of the seedling and a bottom cone where you can place the ashes. The design of the Bios Urn allows the seedling to grow separated from the ashes. Once the urn starts the decomposing process, the tree roots are already strong enough to contact the ashes and grow through the Bios Urn. Bios Urn is ready to be used with any local indigenous seedling from a tree or plant and is suitable for both humans and pets.
The Bios Urn has been designed to hold all the ashes that result from the process of cremation and its capacity is 5.8lbs, 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 landscape and climatic conditions, the Bios Urn arrives with no seed. On request, at Soul Trees we are able to supply any Australian Premium Quality seed of your choice.
However, we generally recommend seedlings that can be easily purchased at any local Nursery.
