Urn turns into Remembrance Tree

Sustainability Aspects: A beautiful idea to transform sadness in hope. And a solution not only in CO2 reduction but also the use of land not for graveyards but places to remember, and contemplate, share with loved ones, for animal live, etc

For Tomb-sweeping day: The Spíritree offers a poetic life-from-death metaphor as a celebration of the loved one’s memory, transforming the funeral rite from one of sadness into one of hope, all while promoting environmental restoration and awareness.

The Spíritree is the only product in the market that connects the funeral tradition of commemoration with land preservation. The Spíritree will arrest CO2 as long as the tree stands, thus having a truly negative carbon footprint.

“Planting a Spiritree is a meaningful way of recognizing the deceased with a living, growing monument. The ceremonial planting is a remembrance of the past, and a renewal of life that restores the environment for everyone’s future.”

I find this a great reference to the circle of live and ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
