Become a part of the Ocean . . .

Mainly Urns "They Sell Seashells for the seashore" : ) --- My own little ditty after reading this. Check out the shell pictured to the right: Dimensions: 16" x 16" x 6" (400 cubic inches - ample room for personal notes, mementos or two sets of cremated remains).

This Shell Deep Water Bio Urn is designed to provide families with a clearly themed product that will float momentarily before sinking and biodegrading naturally.

Individually hand-painted and biodegrades naturally over time. Engineered to float for approximately five minutes before descending gracefully.

Fabricated by hand from recycled and earth- friendly materials. Produced using old world "rough pulping" techniques that transform recycled paper into beautiful biodegradable urns.

Includes custom designed, protective carrying case for convenient and discreet transportation. Easy to load the cremated remains and no assembly required. Includes water-soluble plastic bag for cremated remains

Exceeds durable container and TSA airline carry-on requirements

Save the Oceans: The manufacturer of this urn will donate a portion of the proceeds from each Shell Bio Urn sold, to The Ocean Conservancy ( on behalf of the deceased. The family will receive recognition for the donation along with additional information from The Ocean Conservancy.

As a beach person myself... I think this is pretty cool.... and pretty. I tend to think that the body is just a shell for your soul anyway ... what better casing is there? (No pun intended).

This is a truly beautiful urn. Designed to be clearly understood as a sea-scattering urn, the Shell is one of my favorites.
You might be interested in an interview we (Final Embrace) conducted with Darren Crouch of Passages, International, the company that makes the earth urn. You can see it here:
