Bios Urn

Eventually, we will all die.  Some sooner than others.

Bios Urn is an alternative to a grave site or cremation.

Turn Into a Tree When You Die

March 19, 2014 | By: Amanda Froelich,

The rule of life is that “all is change”, and if there is one permanent truth, it’s that every living being will eventually die. And while this may be a frightening notion for some, it’s a truth that is not shared to spread fear, but only hint on the impermanence of everything in the Universe.

But regardless of one’s beliefs of “after death”, a new sort of Urn can inspire re-birth through it’s innovative and eco-friendly design. The intriguing concept was created byGerard Moline, a former worker in the funeral business. Knowing he could create a more ‘interesting’ way to help others “leave this world”, he invented a cheap and eco-friendly urn that can not only sprout a tree, but offer a much less costly method of burial for a very expensive business.

The newBios Urn is made from coconut shell, as well as compacted peat and cellulose. Inside the urn comes a seed for a tree – and there are even various options of ‘what kind of tree’ you’d like to be when you grow up. Pun intended.
