Pet Handmade Paper Casket
These caskets are crafted from a biodegradable paper which is handmade using a centuries-old technique. They are suitable for green burial and clean cremation. Each casket includes a fleece lining, pillow and Blooming Ornament.
Water Biodegradable Urns
Water Biodegradable Urns are designed specifically for that purpose and will float briefly and sink gracefully. They are sustainably produced in a variety of natural materials, including recycled paper, rock salt, gelatin and sand. Although they were designed for water burial, all of these urns can also be used for earth burial.
Earth Biodegradable Urns
Earth Biodegradable Urns are designed to degrade over time under natural conditions. Generally, the more moisture in the soil, the quicker the urn will biodegrade, although several other factors including burial depth and general health of the soil must also be considered.
