The Sea Journey Water Release urn is perfect for deep-water burial in fresh or salt-water. It's engineered to float briefly before gracefully sinking. Please note that float times may vary depending on water conditions and the weight of the cremated remains inside. Once on the bottom, the paper urn breaks down naturally over time, generally within 24-48 hours. Journey Earthurns are available in Adult and Mini size. Each Sea Journey urnincludes a water-soluble plastic bag which dissolves on contact with water, allowing the cremated remains to be dispersed within minutes.
These urns are handmade using a centuries-old paper making technique. The bark from the mulberry tree is harvested, leaving the tree alive and intact. After the bark is soaked, the resulting pulp is laid out on bamboo screens, often with floral material inlaid, and dried in the sun. Once dry, the paper is shaped into beautiful urns that break down in water or soil. Available in two sizes.
