Project Description:
To design an Urn for human remains made from bio-degradable materials. The urn has a dual purpose – to contain the ashes/remains of the deceased and as a container for a tree to be planted and grow.

All materials must be 100% bio-degradable, and may include coconut shell, peat and cellulose – or other recyclable material. The normal volume of 6’1” human remains is 200 cubic inches – so ideally the urn should have a 5 liter capacity to provide some leeway. As a guide, the urn may be cylindrical with a radius of 75mm and height of 300mm – this is a rough guide only, please check all calculations.

The urn should be enclosed with a Certificate that records burial details that can be detached and kept as a memento or historical document. This would be printed using vegetable inks on recycled paper or card.
