New to our online cremation urn store, the Biodegradable Shell Urn is ideal for an environmentally conscious water burial of cremated remains. Handcrafted in the USA by a Washington-based ceramic urn artist, the Shell Urn is the first in a new line of naturally water-soluble scattering urns made from Grolleg paper clay.
Grolleg clay is a “green” mixture of plant materials and naturalplant fibers, which help bind the clay together and make the un-fired cremation urn strong and durable once dry. When the urn is placed in the water (or in the ground for an eco-friendly burial) the plant fibers soak up the water to make for a quick-dissolving water scattering memorial urn. This makes the Shell Urn ideal for an eco-friendly water burial ceremony, and the seashell construction creates a lovely ocean theme for someone who loved the ocean.
