“Bios Urn transforms the burial ritual in a regeneration and return to life through nature. As a result, cemeteries become forests.”

bios urn

Via Reddit — Designers Gerard Moline and Martin Azua have created a biodegradable urn that turns you or your loved one’s ashes into a plant. He calls it the Bios Urn. As a Redditor pointed out, “What happens if the plant dies?”  Personally, I don’t think you will know or care about the plants you fertilize once you have been cremated. It is a great looking product, but I think I would be just as happy to have my ashes spread over my garden.

  1. This is a great idea. I don’t think anyone really wants to keep an urn of your ashes around for generations.

  2. I would like my corpse to be dumped in the woods and eaten by wild animals in a circle of life kind of thing, but I suppose this is the next best.
