In the Netherlands, a producer of biodegradable urns is helping families ensure that their loved ones’ end-of-life journeys “reflect their life philosophy.”
Legendurns’ latest offering is made from 99% made from Brewers’ spent grains—a residue from malted barley used to make beer. According to the company, conventional urns often contain heavy metals that cause environmental damage.
“We are proud to be a part of the mourning process for families and helping meet their demand for sustainable options when it comes to honoring their loved ones,” the company says in a press statement. “Our biodegradable urns reduce the harmful effects of metal toxicity from urns on the environment. We also offer customization to help families remember the people they adored so much.”
