The ARKA Acorn Urn is intended to contain ashes after cremation. The Acorn Urn is made in the UK from recycled paper and other natural fibers. It's hand worked and sanded smooth in the ARKA workshop in Brighton, UK, and then overlaid in a mulberry bark paper dyed with natural non-toxic color. Once buried, the natural fibers will decompose rapidly. Produced to UK regulation size - 10" high x 8" wide (220 cubic inches) - it's considered a large urn, adequate for most cremated remains.
Plant the urn about 1-2 feet deep in the earth, at least 3 feet away from the roots of any small bushes or young trees. The alkaline "ash" of the burned bones, mostly calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate, then returns slowly to the soil and will be used over time by the plants and surrounding soil web.
