The Biotree Urn is a 100% biodegradable cremation urn that turns cremation ashes into a tree once planted. It has been designed to celebrate life whilst giving an environmentally sound alternative to traditional forms of burial.
Each Biotree Urn comes with an unique code that allows one to geotag and write an online memorial for a loved one on the Biotree.earth website, giving them a chance to do something never before available with cremation, the ability to memorialise and leave behind a living memory of a loved one for future generations to see.
The Biotree Urn is an environmentally conscious product that helps shape a greener planet by producing oxygen and reducing carbon, it also creates a natural habitat for animal life. In addition, Biotree.earth donates a tree for every urn sold, doubling the positive effect on the environment and assisting in reforestation efforts in South Africa.
Each Biotree Urn comes with a memorial bracelet which has been hand-beaded by the Bead Coalition, an organisation that creates employment for underprivileged women in rural areas.

- Three indigenous tree species for you to choose from.
