As many people seek to live greener lives, continuing that momentum in death is becoming more popular. As a result, biodegradable urns are increasingly in demand.

Cremation is not only budget-friendly, but an eco-friendly option as well and biodegradable urns allow the life to come full circle, returning to nature. Over 50 million people die each year. Traditional burial services can have a very negative environmental impact, but choosing green options such as a bio urn help lessen the impact on the earth. 

Formaldehyde, a chemical often used in traditional embalming practices, is considered harmful by many including by the World Health Organization. Once in the ground it has the potential to seep into the earth, contaminating the ground and water. Biodegradable urns come in many forms, which can be dissolved, disintegrated or decompose naturally.

Paying Tribute to a Loyal Companion The loss of a pet, for some people, is just as tragic as the loss of a human life.  Burial urns for pets are a good way to pay tribute to your beloved dog or cat.  No other pet will ever replace them, and your loss is real.  As with the loss of a loved one, you will most likely go through the grieving process before you begin to heal.  Burial urns for pets help make the loss more final, so that you can move forward with life. Often, those you work with, friends, and even family members cannot understand how you can be so upset.  As humans, people tend to be sympathetic toward the loss of human life.  They offer their ears to listen, food, cards and more, but when you lose a pet there is often no one to console you.  Burial urns for pets help you feel as though you did something out of respect for your pet, to demonstrate the love and feelings you have inside.
