The Biotree Urn has been designed to pay respect to life while giving back to the planet. The Urn is a 100% biodegradable cremation urn which will turn your furbabies ashes into a beautiful tree once planted.
All you need to do is add water and plant one of the three tree species supplied with each urn.
The urn has a soil disc which contains a blend of nutrients to support the happy growth of a seed or sprout. When the tree has sprouted, add your furbabies ashes to the base of the urn and plant your Biotree Urn in a special place.
As your tree grows, the urn and your furbabies ashes return to nature, giving back to nature.
