Coping with the Loss of a Pocket Pet

Your loved pocket pet may become a beautiful tree

What happens when you lose your loved pet, whether a pocket pet, a baby animal, or a parrot? You may decide to avoid cremation and place your loved pet inside a Bios UrnSealing the urn will prevent other animals from digging it up.

Invite family and friends to your special planting ceremony, and plant your Bios Urn on your property or in a plant pot.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need assistance.
We’re here for you.

Step 1

Gently lay your beloved pet in the lower capsule of the Bios Urn. Fill the remainder of the lower capsule with soil from the surrounding area so as not to leave a gap present. Once you have filled it completely, place the top capsule on the lower one and twist it slightly to the side. Thanks to its double capsule design, the Bios Urn locks into place so your pet is secured inside, and the Bios Urn is ready to be planted.  
TIP: you may wrap your pet in a thin cotton bag or anything biodegradable.

Step 2

Choose the location and plant your Bios Urn. If you need assistance with this, please get in touch with our friendly Team here.
Plant your Bios Urn! Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the Bios Urn. Generally, around 15-16 inches (380-410 mm) is a good depth, with a width of 10-12 inches (260-310 mm). Plant the Bios Urn inside, leaving the soil surface a couple of fingers above the top of the urn.
TIP: water the entire hole before you plant the Bios Urn into it, which will help begin the biodegradation process.

Step 3

Remove the seal from the top capsule and unpack the growth medium. Gently place the seedling, combining its soil with the growth medium and, if necessary, adding additional soil from the site where you are planting the Bios Urn.
TIP: If the seedling and the soil fit perfectly in the top capsule, you can mix and add the top growth medium and soil of the site.

Step 4

Cover the Bios Urn with soil from the surrounding area, and thoroughly water the spot you have planted it. None of the Bios Urn should be exposed, and it should all be covered by soil. Plant your urn where you want your tree to grow and take care of it. Always plant all of the urn, which is 100% biodegradable and won’t damage the soil. You can plant your Bios Urn using tube stock, seedlings, or shrubs, whichever you prefer. We generally recommend planting during the appropriate season according to your tree.
