Bios Urn Will Turn You Into A Tree After You Die

Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn designed to convert you into a tree after you die. The urn is made using 100% biodegradable materials, coconut shell, compacted peat, and cellulose. It has two parts – a top capsule with the proper medium to allow complete germination of the seed, and a bottom cone where you can place the ashes.

The design of this tree urn allows the seed to germinate separated from the ashes. Once the urn starts the decomposing process, the tree roots are already strong enough to contact the ashes and grow through the Bios Urn.

Bios Urn is ready to be used with any seed from a tree, shrub or plant. The urn planters don’t have an expiration date, so you can buy it when you want and keep it saved for a long time. And you can also use it with old ashes, just transfer them into the Bios Urn and plant it where you want.

We think death is one of the most significant moments in human life, so we want to convert it into a transformation and a return to life through nature. Bios Urn aims to reintroduce man into the natural cycle of life by allowing to become a tree when you die.

And remember: there’s life, after life.

I have always thought that cemeteries are a terrible waste of space, except maybe very old ones. A good way to help the earth. Bravo!

I believe this would also be a beautiful way to inter a dearly loved pet when they pass.

This is a great idea. Harvest the organs then grow a tree. I love this idea and would so do it!
