Another Clever Idea for Ashes

The Bios Urn is a clever idea that is currently available out of Europe.  I’m sure that it will catch on in the US, at least in Oregon.  You select a tree variety or other plant and mix it with soil from the area in which it will be planted.  As the tree grows, its roots expand into the biodegradable urn, causing the tree to grow from the ashes of your loved one.

The Bios Urn may trouble some people as much as it intrigues others, but if nothing else, it is one more example of the multitude of ways we can remember loved ones or choose to be remembered ourselves.  Remember to tell your family about your wishes, so you can make sure they get it right!
