"The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living" Marcus Tullius Cicero
As a human, we are aware that death can come anytime and thus, we must be ready. Additionally, we also would like to remember our beloved person or our self in the best way.
Traditionally, we buried the body of our beloved one in the cemetery. However, the land for the cemetery is getting limited. Human activities are mainly focus on the development of the living and not for the dead.Cremation, on the other hand, is an alternative to burial. People placed the ashes inurs before the funeral or memorial service.
Statistic showed that in 2014, over 1,500,000 death record in Australia. A number that is not small. Imagine if the same amount we use to plant seeds for reforestation?
Technology such as Bios Urn is a piece of innovation developed from beautiful ideas of transforming a cemetery into a forest. Making use of human corpse for conserving the nature and create a different way to remember the dead. They created a simple design of a biodegradable cremation. Bio Urns transform the ashes inurns to pot for plantation. The human ashes or your urn will be placed in the containers on top of the seeds. The seeds will then grow into a beautiful tree and with a large amount it can create a forest.
Bio Urn creates an eco-friendly, sustainable and meaningful experience for human beings and the environment. The concept offered a good solution to overcome deforestation, pollution, waste and preserving natural resources. Subsequently, it will give additional value to ourselves and the one we loved, not just for remembering but also knowing our contribution to save the nature.
