Death is a part of life. As sportsmen, we are subjected to death every time we have a successful hunt. But, how about our own mortality? Did you know you can incorporate your own death into life of something else?
A company called Bios actually created an urn that includes soil and seeds which will produce a tree when the urn structure is planted.
Thanks to Bios Urn structure, the seed germinates in the top capsule, separated from the ashes. Once the urn starts to biodegrade seed roots are already strong enough to contact the ashes. With biodegradation the entire set becomes part of the sub-soil.
The Bios website (urnabios.com) also states that, “The top capsule of Bios Urn was built to facilitate the growth of the seed. Before burying the urn, you have to mix the components with some soil from where you want to plant the urn. The components allow a proper seed germination.” You can choose from the following tree seedlings: Pine, Gingko, Maple, Oak, Ash and Beech. Bios Urns are not limited to ashes from people–you can also memorialize your pet the same way.
For those people and animals who LOVE the outdoors, can you think of a better way to leave a legacy than with new life in the form of a tree? What are your thoughts?
