Journey WaterUrn 100% Biodegradable WaterUrn
Journey WaterUrn: This biodegradable water urn is 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 screen.
Use: Suitable for deeper rivers, lakes or the sea when placed in water they will float* and then gracefully sink to the bottom, where they break down naturally over time. It comes in seven colours and there is a matching ‘mini’ urn available.
* Note: The length of time the urn floats depends on a number of things including its weight and the amount air in the urn, on average the urn will float for around 5 minutes but this can vary. If two people are placed in a companion urn the combined weight means that the urn is unlikely to float.
They are approved for use by the Royal Navy. Each urn includes a water-soluble bag for the ashes.Water burials are a very dignified way to conduct a #4thceremony – you can cast petals, put last words on our promises notelets. While the simple water urn floats, you will have enough time to say some final words, prayers or thoughts. Many clients find that the simple presence of a body of water after the ceremony can help them to remember that person.
We consider these urns more suitable for deeper water below the low tide line. Please see our page on general guidance for ceremonies or river or the sea.
Finally, it is sensible idea to record where you conducted the ceremony for future generations, if you are on a boat the skipper will be able to tell you your eastings and northings.
