Our Purple Journey Water Biodegradable Cremation Urn - 2 Sizess are handmade using a centuries old papermaking technique. First, the bark from the mulberry tree is harvested, leaving the tree alive and intact. After the bark is soaked, the resulting pulp is laid out on bamboo screens, often with floral material inlaid, and dried in the sun. Once dry the paper is used to create our beautiful and earth-friendly cremation urns, which will break down in water or soil. When placed in water, this water burial urn will float briefly then sink to the bottom, where it will break down naturally over time. Perfect for a ceremony or memorial service. Can be used in the ocean, lake, river or ground.


  • Material: Sustainably produced, biodegradable paper
  • Urn will float briefly before sinking (weather conditions may effect time)

    Available sizes are visible in the "Size" option dropdown

  • Dimensions: 6.5"L x 8"W x 2.25"H
  • Capacity: Approx 60 cubic inches.

  • Dimensions: 12.5"L x 14"W x 3"H
  • Capacity: 220 cubic inches.

  • Features

    • The Journey Earthurn is perfect for ocean or deep water burial. These biodegradable urns are engineered to float momentarily and then gracefully sink. Once on the ocean floor, the urn will break down naturally over time.

    • Each Journey Earthurn 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.

    Well Made Product, Prompt Arrival, Good Communicatiom

    I’ve been searching for a container to use to place my partner’s ashes in the sea. Didn’t want to scatter them and risk having the wind blow them all over. Wanted something that would be water degradable, of medium size (I’m only using 1/2-1/2 of his ashes) and was somewhat dignified in appearance. This container - “urn” feels like a misnomer. This is really more of an “envelope” - fits the bill. The color is more subdued than depicted, not as much robin’s egg blue and more blue with periwinkle tones. Construction is sturdy. I mean it’s paper so you need to take care but the seams are well sealed and will survive transport on the boat once it’s filled. The surface has a nice, nubby texture that gives it a quality feel. This is not some cheap card stock.
    It was hard to find the medium sized container. Many other online sellers offer this or a similar style urn is large and small but Mainely Urns was the only one I found with this style in this size.
    The urn arrived promptly after my order and Mainely Urns kept me informed at each stage of the order and delivery process. It arrived well packaged, marked “fragile” and cushioned in (water soluble) packing peanuts.
    Choosing an urn for a loved ones remains is a difficult process, wanting to choose just the right container and dealing with the emotions that come with that. I was very pleased with my interaction with Mainely Urns and the quality of their product. They made a hard process much easier.
