Biodegradable Urn Turns Ashes Into A Tree

Spanish product designer Martín Azúa has combined the notion of ‘life after death’ with an eco-friendly urn called the ‘Bios Urn’.

This conceptual urn is made with biodegradable materials such as coconut shells, organic fertilizer and seeds of a tree.

Once ashes have been added into the urn, it can be planted in the ground, which causes the seed to germinate and grow into a beautiful tree.

According to the designers, you can even choose the type of plant or tree that the urn contains.
