Turtle Water Urn
The Turtle Water Urn is a 100% biodegradable water urn that allows you to create a unique, meaningful ceremony. Crafted by hand by artisans in Mexico from recycled paper using non-toxic glues. These unique urns are fabulous.
Turtle water urns float for a short while before sinking. The time that the turtle takes to sink will depend on the weight of remains inside and local water conditions. The more ashes there are and the more turbulent the water the quicker the urn will sink.
Once the turtle sinks, it will biodegrade naturally over time. They are suitable for deeper water.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is it ok to keep your pet’s ashes?
Many people keep their pet’s ashes at home, some because they are not sure what to do with them, some because they are not yet ready to do something with them and some simply want to keep them close by, in the house.
Sometimes, very well meaning, friends will give advice such as ‘it’s time to move on’ or ‘you’ll feel better if you scatter/bury them’. You are the only one who will know how you feel about the loss of your pet. And only you will know when and if the time is right to do something, if ever, with their ashes.
Until then a simple scatter tube or beautiful urn will keep them safe.
