Organic sea burial urn / funeral products

Organic sea burial urn
Organic sea burial urn

In China, most of the corn straw is burned, which has a great harm to the ecological environment. With the decrease of cemetery resources, marine burial will become a new trend of funeral industry in the future. The product is an organic sea burial urn made by grinding and pressing the remaining corn straw. It can be degraded in the ocean, and the degraded organics can also be used by marine organisms.
