Each urn has a cotton rope 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.

Ideal 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 Biodegradable Promise Post Card is Included - Present to Cruse Line or Ship Captain if you are asked if the Peaceful Pillow is biodegradable.
"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."

My wife and I purchased this urn and had it engraved. This was for a family who we were happy to be there for, they are our long time friends. The urn came and was given to the family filled with Rob’s cremains. I must say the engraving was certainly appreciated by his parents, to see his name on the urn. The service was a respectful event for a special young man. Thank you, I do recommend this urn for those who have chosen, a water burial at sea.
