The Capsula Mundi is made from a biodegradable bioplastic. The time it takes to biodegrade ranges from a few months to a few years, depending on local climate and soil conditions. Made in Italy, each urn is unique, thanks to handcrafted interventions during production.
How it works
The base of the Capsula Mundi can be unscrewed allowing the user to place the ashes within the urn. The urn is then placed in a hole in the ground and a sapling or tree of your choice is planted above the vessel. As the Capsula Mundi biodegrades, the ashes mix with the surrounding soil and nourish the plant as it grows.
The price does not include a seed, sapling or tree. We encourage you to choose a sapling or young tree from your local native nursery as this will allow you to select a plant that is suited to your area and hardened to the local conditions.
