The Carpel Rock Salt biodegradable cremation urn is made from pure salt and can be sealed with non-toxic paper or wood glue (not included). When totally submerged it completely dissolves in any body of water in less than 4 hours. This exclusive biodegradable salt urn comes from the magnificent mountains of the Middle East where Mother Nature has been compacting salt crystals under the ground for many centuries. The reddish hue of the salt is derived from the percentage of iron content in the actual salt bed.
An Eco-Friendly Biodegradable Cremation Urn
Biodegradable cremation urns are designed to break down naturally over time, eventually returning the ashes, or cremated remains, back to the earth. This urn is crafted from natural, Eco-friendly materials. Biodegradable cremation urns are thoughtfully made with nature and our environment in mind.
Perfect for Burial or Scattering
This urn is designed for scattering ceremonies, but it can also be buried in an earth grave or placed in a lake, pond, river, or the ocean for water burial. There is no "shelf-life" associated with this urn, which means it will not break down until it has been exposed to the elements. However, because it is made completely of salt, it should be kept in the included protective plastic airtight bag if it is being stored in an humid environment.
A Few Things to Consider before Scattering...
The scattering of cremated remains is a beautiful way to pay final tribute to a deceased loved one or friend. However, if you intend to scatter any cremated remains on someone else's private property (or on public property), you must first contact the owner(s) or appropriate authorities to make sure they will permit the scattering. You might also want to consider retaining a small portion of the cremated remains in order to establish a small, permanent memorial in your home, backyard, or family cemetery. A small amount of cremated remains can be kept in optional cremation jewelry, or in keepsake urns or token urns.
