Biodegradable salt urns

A wide variety of biodegradable urns is now available for ground or water burial. Traditional urns use materials like marble, glass and metal that degrade extremely slowly, making them unsuitable for a green burial. Green urns are made from sustainable, recyclable and eco-friendly materials, including Himalayan rock salt and sustainably-produced handmade paper.

If desired, these urns may be used for display of the remains, as they will not degrade until buried in the earth or in a body of water.

Biodegradable urns designed for water burial will degrade in a matter of hours or days so as to have as little impact on the environment as possible.

Those who wish to place cremated remains in a tomb, columbarium or at home can choose greener biodegradable urns such as those made from bamboo, a sustainable and renewable wood.
