Biodegradable Paper Turtles are crafted by hand from recycled paper using non-toxic glues. The purchase of a turtle will contribute to the preservation of a traditional local art form. The skilled artisans producing these beautiful turtles are paid a fair wage in local workshop environments.

The turtles are available in two sizes. An adult size that will accommodate a full set of human remains and a mini turtle that will accommodate up to two or three tablespoons of cremated remains.

The turtles are designed to float briefly before sinking. The time that the turtle takes to sink will depend on the weight of remains inside and local water conditions. Once the turtle sinks, it will biodegrade naturally over time.

    The biodegradable urn in the shape of the turtle was perfect for Mum’s wishes to be scattered over the bay. We did not have to worry about wind conditions and we will let nature do her job of breaking down the urn and biodegradable plastic that will then allow Mum’s ashes to be scattered where she wanted. All of the grandchildren attended and understood that Mum’s ashes were in the turtle and that the meaning of a green turtle is freedom – that is what our Mum could not attain at the end of her life but regained it in death.
