The Biodegradable Natural Paper Mini Turtle Cremation Urn is hand crafted from recycled paper and produced in Haiti by skilled artisans. The purchase of a biodegradable turtle urn will contribute in a small way to the rebuilding of this devastated nation.

This urn is TSA approved and perfect for carry-on when traveling. The urn is constructed to clearly allow security screeners to view the contents of the urn.

Each water burial turtle urn will accommodate up to two or three tablespoons (5 cubic inches) of cremated remains and are designed to float briefly before sinking. Once the turtle sinks, it will biodegrade naturally over time. Can be used in the ocean, lake, river or ground. Although the turtle cremation urn is designed for water burial, it can also be used for earth burial.

Available in Natural and Newsprint designs. Since the turtles are crafted by hand, the size, shape and color of each may vary.


  • Dimensions: 9" W x 7" H x 2.5" D
  • Capacity: 5 Cubic Inches
  • Airline Travel Safe

  • Features

    • Before being released into the water, this urn should be sealed with a non-toxic glue.
    • The Turtle Urn is designed to float briefly before gracefully sinking. Float times may vary depending on the weight of the cremated remains and the local water/weather conditions.
    • Includes a water-soluble plastic bag (into which the cremated remains MUST be placed) which dissolves on contact with water. This allows the cremated remains to be dispersed quickly and the urn to remain submerged.

    Important Notes & Information

    Scattering ashes at sea. The federal Clean Water Act requires that cremated remains be scattered at least three nautical miles from land. If the scattering urn or container will not easily decompose, you must dispose of it separately. The EPA does not permit scattering at beaches or in wading pools by the sea. You must notify the EPA within 30 days of scattering ashes at sea.

    The Clean Water Act also governs scattering in inland waters such as rivers, lakes and ponds. For inland water burial, you may be legally required to obtain a permit from the state agency that manages the waterway.

    As advertized, floated for a while and slowly sank. Perfect for our celebration. I chose to paint the top of the turtle with a talavera tile design. See attached photo.

    Exactly what we wanted...

    My husband wanted some of his ashes to be placed in the Pacific Ocean at our favorite beach in Hawaii. This turtle is exactly what we were looking for because we used to swim with sea turtles at this beach.

    A special memory
    December 12, 2015
    My mother loved her lake home. She has traveled all around the world, but her lake home was her favorite place on earth. Her ashes will be buried with my father, but she thought it would be such a loving memory to send some of her ashes to the lake. So, that's what we will plan to do with the mini turtle. He will be launched at the lake where my mother and father and all of her family shared many wonderful memories. Thank you for such a loving way to make a lasting memory.
