The write up for this product read as follows:
"How would you like to grow into a tree after you die?
This is a Bios Urn, a completely biodegradable urn that
contains a single tree seed. When planted, the tree seed is nourished by and absorbs the nutrients from the ashes. The urn itself is made from coconut shell and contains compacted peat and cellulose. The ashes are mixed with this, and the seed placed inside. You can even choose which type of tree you'd like to grow!
So which would you prefer; leaving behind a tree or a tombstone?"
I wholeheartedly would have to say that I would rather leave behind a tree. Better yet, put the seeds in my belly, wrap me in linen and bury me if it means it would make it grow tall and lush. Let the roots wrap around where my heart once dwelled, feast on the flesh that once took so selfishly from a world that equally drained my soul. Let me vanish into a forrest of like trees, a gathering of people offering their bodies for the good of the earth where one day children will walk and hear the whispers of those who went before as the wind blows through branches as if to say...learn from our mistakes, and forgive us for what we tried to make amends for in our death.
