Cremation urns now come in many shapes and sizes so in whatever way you want to contain the ash, you will certainly be accommodated. Some people are more partial to wearing cremation jewelry in a form of a pendant or ring while others prefer a key chain with a small compartment for the ash. Other cremation keepsakes are fashioned into unique sculptures that you can display in your home.
If you want to scatter the ash into the sea or bury the urn in the ground, you may want to consider those biodegradable urns. Once it is dropped into the water, the urn itself will break down in a day. The ground burial on the other hand, will take a year, but being biodegradable, you can have the peace of mind that it is not introducing harmful chemicals or waste into the soil. These urns that are crafted from paper or salt are so smooth and artistically designed that you may not even be able to tell that it is not made of ceramic or marble. If you want to help the environment and not contribute to its problems, then a biodegradable urn is the way to go.
