Our Vista Remembrance Scattering Tube is made of environmentally friendly biodegradable paper. It can be used to scatter a loved one's ashes or to naturally return them to the earth or water. Your loved one can also be honored with engraving. This remembrance size urn, unlike the full and keepsakesizes, can only be engraved on the side with stock art and text. This urn was made to be completely earth friendly along with its original biodegradable packaging.
