DetailsReturn your loved one to nature in a Samsara Biodegradable Urn. Samsara is a hand-crafted urn made with sand, a minute amount of sea salt and bound by plant extracts. It is extremely hard, biodegradable and 100% soluble. It has been specially designed to restore ashes to nature, whether submerging it in water (fresh or saltwater) or burying it: both at the seashore and in the ground. The approximate dissolution time is one hour when it is submerged in water, whereas if it is buried at the seashore, the dissolution time will depend on how moist the ground is.The funeral director or crematorium can assist you with the interment of your loved ones ashes. Secure Haven can also provide the full planting process at an additional cost if you contact the team and are local to Secure Haven / Pet Sanctuary. SECURE HAVEN ARE THE EXCLUSIVE UK DISTRIBUTOR OF THE SAMSARA URN.
- To use the Samsara urn take out the water soluble bag from the urn.
- Cut the strap and keep it to close the bag at the end of the process.
- Place the open bag inside the urn and place the ashes inside
- Close the bag with the plastic strap.
- Cover the mouth of the urn with the lid
- Place the urn either in a body of water or bury it along the shoreline.
- Start by taking some digital scales and the container of ashes that you would have received from the crematorium.
- Place this box onto the digital scales and weigh the ashes.
- If your ashes are contained in a poly-tub, remove 230 grams from the additional weight
- Our rule of thumb is that for every kilogram of cremated remains, this equates to 1 litre of ashes.
- This means if you have approximately 3 kilograms of cremated remains you will need to purchase an urn of between 3-4 litres in capacity.
- Secure Haven have urns to suit all needs available from 0.75 through to 8 litre capacities.

- A Perfect Vehicle for Sending My Grandfather to HIs Favourite Place
Your very discreet, biodegradable urn was the most tasteful way to took my grandfather (who was in the Royal Navy during the Second World War) back to sea where he spent his most memorable days as a young man. Thank you for supplying such a lovely, eco-friendly design.
