There are a few simple rules to follow depending on where you want to place the urn. Certain cemeteries have a special area for degradable urns, you can bury it on your property but you must disclose this if you sell. I don’t think this holds for animals. 

You must keep a certain distance from the shore if it’s a water burial. Most likely it’s allowed in the desert (there is something strangely appealing to be buried in Death Valley). Ask local authorities for a list of rules.

I’ve discovered that preparing for my last act on earth has helped me come to terms with death. I no longer feel I’m a passive victim of destiny, but an active participant. I realized that, if I can’t take it with me, I can choose what I leave behind. 


Paper urns are made of all natural materials and dissolve completely in water or in the ground.  Lacquered, they have the same life span as wood.

You can choose from the gallery, or you can choose your own design.
