The Bio-Urn is a greener and more organic alternative to traditional burial practices.

Gerard Moline offers an organic alternative to traditional burial practices and “reintroduces the human being to the natural circle of life.” The Bio-Urn is made from biodegradable materials, including coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose. Inside the urn is a seed of a tree, and once planted, the seed germinates and begins to grow.

The mortuary urn is a patented design and rethinks the meaning of “life after death” and provides a greener option than traditional methods. Embalming bodies often uses harsh chemicals, while caskets are often made from non-sustainable materials and even endangered wood.
