The world famous Bios Urn project reintroduces the human being to the natural circle of life.The Bios Urn turns burial into regeneration and a return to life through nature.
Bios is a funeral urn made from biodegradable materials: cellulose,coconut shell, compacted peat, and natural ﬁbres. Inside it there is a “Pinus” seed which can be replaced by another seed or plant suitable for the location and time of year. To ensure success we recommend you use a germinated plant or bury the urn next to a tree that will grow to remember your loved one. Once the urn is planted, the seed germs and begins to grow. Inside the BIOS URN you will find the seed of a tree called "Aleppo Pine". (You can also very easily changethe seeds and put any kind of seeds compatible with your local environment. see faq for more information)
What’s in the box?
The volume of the BIOS URN is 3 Liters. (ashes of a 120 km human).
1. The urn comes assembled and ready to be taken to the place chosen for the regeneration.
2. Remove the seal and the outer packaging of the urn.
3. Put the ashes in the urn’s lower part. Close it with the top part and put the soil with the seed in it.
4. Bury the urn in fertile soil with its top level with the soil surface and water it.
5. In a few days the seed will germinate and your tree will begin to grow.
6. The tree will continue to grow year after year.
