If you are very environmentally aware, or your loved one was, you may also want to consider a biodegradable urn. This type of urn or ash casket will biodegrade once placed in water or earth, although this can take several months to happen. Our biodegradable urns for ashes are manufactured from 100% biodegradable organic materials. Over time, these urns will decompose and return to the soil or water.

Our range biodegradable urns are perfect for this. These biodegradable urns will gracefully float for a period of time before slowly sinking to the bottom of the water. They contain no items that are harmful to the environment and ensure a safe goodbye to your loved one.

Biodegradable scattering tubes for ashes

Scattering the ashes of a beloved one can be a lovely way for the family to come together to celebrate their beloved one’s life as well as to say goodbye and gain some closure.

Many people choose to scatter the ashes in the garden of their home, though choosing a special place such as a where they enjoyed walking. Many crematoriums also offer areas such as a Garden of Remembrance, where you can choose to scatter the ashes of your beloved one after they have been cremated. You can then return to visit when you want to remember them.

What is a scattering tube for ashes?

A scatter tube is our thoughtfully designed container that holds the ashes of your beloved one after cremation and is especially designed for the scattering of cremation ashes. The ashes can be placed in a scatter tube when you are ready to scatter or bury the ashes or can be put into a scatter tube by the crematorium after the cremation has taken place.

The scattering tubes come in a wide range of different designs and sizes and are cylindrical. They have an easy opening at one end, so you can take off the lid and scatter the ashes when you have decided upon the perfect place.

How to use a biodegradable scatter tube?

Using a scatter tube is very straightforward and easy to use. They have a removable outer lid and a perforated inner lid which you press through when you are ready to scatter the ashes. The hardest thing perhaps is deciding where and when you would like your beloved one’s ashes to be scattered or buried.

There are several options you can choose from:

Water burial

Our scatter tubes are suitable for ashes scattering over water, but we do not recommend them for ashes water burial by submersion. It is generally considered acceptable to scatter the ashes in UK inland waterways – although we would recommend you check with landowners or relevant authorities. There are stricter controls over seashores and coastal waters and the relevant permissions should be sought before scattering your beloved one’s ashes at sea or on a beach. You may wish to seek more guidance from the Environmental Agency and you should always keep environmental impact in mind.

Burying ashes

Our scatter tubes are safe for ashes burial if you would prefer to pick a spot for your beloved one’s ashes to rest intact, rather than being scattered. You can bury your beloved one’s ashes in your garden if you own your home. If not, or if you are concerned about leaving them behind if you move house, you could bury the ashes in a large pot or planter or in one of our cremation urns or caskets specially created for ashes burial. An alternative is to have your beloved one’s ashes buried in a Garden of Remembrance at your crematorium where you can visit them. Our plain coloured Scatter Tubes are especially suitable for ashes burial as they are 100% biodegradable and all our Scatter Tubes are made from over 90% recycled materials meaning that you can bury your beloved one’s ashes with peace of mind.

Scattering ashes

You can scatter your beloved one’s ashes wherever you like, within reason, in the UK if you have checked with any landowners. However, there are a few exceptions, restrictions, and laws. If you aren’t 100% certain whether it’s OK to scatter or bury the ashes, checking with the relevant authorities first will give you peace of mind. Please keep the environment in mind and try not to leave anything that would have a negative impact on the countryside or wildlife.
