Biodegradable Urn For Planting Ashes With The Seed Of A Tree [Pics]

Spanish designer Martin Azua has come up with the idea of a mortuary urn containing the seed of a tree. Bios Urn is made from biodegradable materials including coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose. Once the ashes have been placed and the urn planted, the seed inside starts to germinate and will eventually grow into a tree. You can choose different types of tree or plant seeds depending on their suitability for the area you wish to plant it.
