The burial of cremated remains in water has become extremely popular and the container you use to disperse the ashes had better break down!
On June 25, 2012 California passed Bill AB1777 requiring any urn with cremated remains that is placed into the ocean, must biodegrade within 4 hours. You know what a good choice would be? A quick-dissolving urn for ashes that is made from salt and complies with the new law! Sand & Gelatin urns also dissolve quickly making them another perfect choice.
We don’t recommend placing any urn into the water from a beach or pier, current federal regulations state that a cremation urn should not be placed into water within three nautical miles of shore.
Suitable urns for deep water burial would be the award-winning Memento Urn and the Shell Urns both of which would work well for that type of memorial service.
For families who opt to scatter ashes the traditional way, pouring the ashes from the urn, we offer the popular and easy-to-use scattering tubes.
They are suitable for earth or water scattering and are available in eleven beautiful designs. These affordable scattering tubes can be recycled after the ceremony.
