Eco Friendly Options

We recognise that many of our client families feel strongly about caring for and protecting the environment during their earthly life.  They also want funeral options that are sustainable and eco-friendly, leaving a lighter, softer and smaller footprint on the earth.

Choosing green, environmentally friendly options for a funeral can be a more sustainable and affordable alternative to traditional funerals.

These options can include:

  • environmentally friendly coffins or shrouds
  • bio-degradable garments for the deceased
  • natural burial grounds

Bios Urn

Bios Urn

Bios Urn provides the way to renew life through Nature.

The patented, award winning ‘Bios Urn’ is the world’s first Biodegradable Urn.

The Bios Urn is a fully biodegradable urn designed to convert you into a TREE after Life.

The urn has two separate sections: a bottom section for the ashes and the top section with a special growth medium where you plant your seedling. When the urn is buried the seedling grows in the top section and its roots grow down through the ashes, as the Bios Urn biodegrades.

Simply plant your seedling in the urn, and then plant the urn straight into your garden or a plant pot. With some simple care, your seedling will grow into a healthy living memorial to your loved one. You can create a multi-generational memorial by using plants that self seed.

As the Bios Urn has no expiry date, you can use your Bios Urn whenever you are ready, using recent or old ashes.

Suitable for both humans and pets.
