Would you want to be buried in a biodegradable urn?
MANILA, Philippines – Bios Philippines is bringing to the Philippines 100% biodegradable urns that are built to store both your loved one’s cremated ashes and a tree seed together. The ashes below the soil mix act as the fertilizer for a the tree.
Bios is a company that deals with creating an "sustainable and eco-friendly solution to approach an inevitable phase of human life." The biodegradable urn is one of two products they offer.
"Imagine visiting your loved ones in forests, not graveyards. We see a greener world with Bios Urn. We celebrate life through turning ashes into trees. We redefine life after death. What would you prefer to leave behind: a tombstone or a tree?" reads a post by Bios on Facebook.
The urn, which retails for P8,500, can be used for both human and pet remains. It works with any seed, but the company itself offers 3 options for Philippine customers – the fire tree, mahogany, acacia. The urn itself has no expiration date.
Bios Philippines believes in the "greener alternative to burial" and that more people should take part in the environmentally-responsible way to pay respect to our departed loved ones.
