This Awesome Urn Will Turn You into a Tree After You Die

You don't find many designers working in the funeral business thinking about more creative ways for you to leave this world (and maybe they should be). However, Spanish designer Martin Azua has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition.
His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. Once your remains have been placed into the urn, it can be planted and then the seed germinates and begins to grow. You even have the choice to pick the type of plant you would like to become, depending on what kind of planting space you prefer. 


I, personally, would much rather leave behind a tree than a tombstone. "

Jessica sent me this link, it's from This is such a good idea! If I don't go with the pinebox, I'm definately going with the Willow Tree Urn!
