Times will vary, our video below shows 5lbs of cremains, an average sized adult, took 3.16 minutes. Taller loved ones, since they are larger boned may slip under more quickly.

Each urn has a hemp cord closure and the Adult Urn has one water soluble, corn starch biodegradable bag, both completely biodegradable. Many families split cremains or more than one person would like the experience of scattering, and so the Shared Urn can be used for splitting cremains, it comes with 1 small bio bag. Full instructions are included. Made in the USA.

TSA Approved Urn. Idea for travel to your destination. We include a Travel Tote Bag to easily carry your urn through TSA security at the airport. Travel on cruise ships is common. These urns are so sturdy, that our customers have reported that they have tossed them into beautiful blue green waters from their cruise ship without a problem. But, once slipped under the water, the urns come apart quickly to release the ashes.

Our Peaceful Pillow® Urns are: Green Burial Council Approved.

"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it is because in addition to the fact that the sea changes and the light changes, and ships change, it is because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it, we are going back from whence we came."

Urn Review Review by Paul K.
Very streamlined, efficient, understandable, & easy to navigate website. I did however, seem to at some points perceive a somewhat, albeit very minute, difference in the variety of products available, as compared to some other sites. Then again, what you had available also seemed vastly more appealing. I appreciate how easy the checkout process was; not being bombarded by offers for this or that as I tried to pay. Also very impressed with the personalized attention & prompt receipt! Thank you for making such an already difficult purchase so much easier!

Humpback Whales came! Review by Doris Ferrer

I want to thank you for all your help in getting us the Peaceful Pillow in such a rush back on the 7th. The burial at sea went beautifully with a whole pod of humpback whales swimming back and forth behind the ship right after we dropped my father-in-law's ashes into the sea.

I just wanted to let you know that your help was VERY much appreciated and we will be sure to let people know how helpful your business is.

Thank you again,

Just as We Hoped Review by Mark Latran
We purchased a Peaceful Pillow Fern companion urn for our parents and 3 keepsakes for family members to place in the ocean. Everything went so well and the urn was sturdy and sank as we had hoped. The keepsake took a bit longer as they were not as heavy, and that was fine. So I am giving this urn and keepsake a rating, thank you. (Posted on 12/6/2011)
