The Sustainable Funeral: How an Eco-Friendly Burial Urn Can Honor the Life of Your Loved One

Cremation is a process by which the natural decay of the human body over time is sped up artificially. If done thoughtfully and with grace, the process can stand as a poignant acknowledgement of the human condition, and as such, can be a valuable means for those who experience the loss of a loved one to accept the realities of a world in which life and death are the norm.

The details involved in a memorial service, a burial or scattering service, and the final disposition of a loved one are many and varied, and are usually handled well by those to whom we turn in these times – funeral home directors, pastors, other or older family members, experienced friends. But remember that you have a say in these details, and that what you say through the details can help to honor the memory of a loved one and to ease the difficulty of their passing.

Some of those details center on the handling of the cremains, or burial ashes, during the memorial service and at the actual burial. The crematorium will deposit the cremains in a plastic bag, which is placed in a cheap plastic or cardboard container. If you choose to bury or scatter the cremains, rather than keeping them nearby as a treasured memory in one of our beautiful hardwood urns, then the choice of how you bury or scatter the ashes of your loved one can be an opportunity to celebrate their life.

This is why we at Urns Northwest are proud to offer a line of eco-friendly urns. These biodegradable cremation urns are beautiful enough to display at the memorial service (which eliminates the cost of renting a temporary urn from the funeral home), and, more importantly, provides an attractive and environmentally friendly way for you to engage in the process of returning the remains of your loved one back to the dust of the earth.

 “Return to the ground,
for out of it you were taken;
for you are dust,
and to dust you shall return.”
– Genesis 3:19

You can celebrate the life of your beloved husband, wife, son, daughter, father, mother, friend, or mentor by celebrating their return to the earth. Here is an eco-friendly biodegradable urn to celebrate the passing seasons in life:

Or honor the memory of the ocean lover by disposition of the cremains through this water scattering urn, which is engineered to float for about 5 minutes before descending to the final resting place in the deep:

And here is our most popular eco-friendly cremation urn, the Journey Earthurn Biodegradable Urn:

Biodegradable Urn

Remember, you have the choice of how to bring your loved on to their final resting place. Listen to the advice of experienced friends, family members, pastors, and funeral home directors, but ultimately do what most celebrates the life of an incredible individual.
