Our Economy White Pillow Medium Biodegradable Cremation Urns are handmade using a centuries old papermaking technique. First, 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 screens, often with floral material inlaid, and dried in the sun. Once dry the paper is used to create our beautiful and earth-friendly cremation urns, which will break down in water or soil. When placed in water, this water burial urn will float briefly then sink to the bottom, where it will break down naturally over time. Perfect for a ceremony or memorial service. Can be used in the ocean, lake, river or ground.Dimensions: 8.75"L x 5.75"W x 4"H Capacity: 100 cubic inches. Urn will float briefly before sinking (weather conditions may effect time) Designed to hold the ashes of a loved one with a weight of 100 lbs or less before cremation.The Economy Pillow urn is perfect for ocean or deep water burial. These biodegradable urns are engineered to float momentarily and then gracefully sink. Once on the ocean floor, the urn will break down naturally over time. Each Economy Pillow urn includes a water-soluble plastic bag (into which the cremated remains MUST be placed) which dissolves on contact with water. This allows the cremated remains to be dispersed quickly and the urn to remain submerged.

The federal Clean Water Act requires that cremated remains be scattered at least three nautical miles from land. If the scattering urn or container will not easily decompose, you must dispose of it separately. The EPA does not permit scattering at beaches or in wading pools by the sea. You must notify the EPA within 30 days of scattering ashes at sea.
The Clean Water Act also governs scattering in inland waters such as rivers, lakes and ponds. For inland water burial, you may be legally required to obtain a permit from the state agency that manages the waterway. Burial at Sea - Code of Federal Regulations Click here
