This beautiful natural biodegradable Himalayan Sea Salt Cremation Urn was carved from a block of sea salt. Millions of years ago a primordial sea evaporated leaving salt beds, rich in minerals. The sea salt coupled with the minerals evaporated and compressed, resulting in salt that ranges in color from pale apricot to dark coral. This color variation is due to the varying concentration of iron and manganese in the location where the salt is mined.
Many of us are environmentally conscious. We strive to lessen our carbon footprint and to leave our planet cleaner than we found it. Most people do not want the fuss of a formal farewell, they want simplicity. Cremation affords not only a cost effective alternative to burial, but in comparison to a traditional funeral, one that is better for the environment.
