The natural choice for green funeral products

Passages Introduces New Eco-Friendly Bamboo Urn

Tribute-Bamboo-2014_front-butterfly_FlowersALBUQUERQUE, NM (December 2014) – Passages International Inc. adds the Tribute Bamboo Urn to its collection of biodegradable and eco-friendly urns.

These stylish urns are handcrafted from 1/2” bamboo plywood and are affordably priced to provide families with an affordable eco-friendly urn alternative. The bamboo used to produce the urns grows rapidly in mountain regions of China and is widely used throughout Asia. It is not a species that is consumed by endangered panda bear populations. While natural and sustainable, the Tribute Bamboo Urn is perfect for permanent placement in a columbarium, niche or the family home.

Each urn features a natural water-based finish and the base affixes with steel screws. The front or top of the urn can also be engraved.

“To remain on the cutting-edge of funeral service, you should be carrying at least a small eco-friendly urn selection,” says Darren Crouch, president of Passages International.  “It only makes sense, as consumers are offered greener alternatives in every other aspect of their lives.” “Passages can help with the process of selecting those urns as well as best-practice marketing techniques.” Crouch continues, “Our experience shows that as demand for earth-friendly products increases, businesses benefit from having greener and biodegradable urn alternatives to present to families.”

Passages International, Inc. is the largest supplier of green and eco-friendly funeral products. Since 1999, it has led the funeral industry with innovative and environmentally-friendly urns, caskets and memorial products. Passages provides urns for water and earth burial as well as for scattering.  The eco-friendly, woven caskets are used for cremation or burial and are available for adults, children and infants.
