'The Living Urn' Helps Deceased Pets Grow Into a Tree

When the time comes to say goodbye to your pet, the Living Urn may be the perfect way to keep your pet's memory alive. 

How do you say goodbye and find a way to honor a pet who has passed away? Some pet owners create memorials, or honor their pet in their burial place. Some pet owners plant trees or shrubs, and others commission works of art in their pet's honor. But now there's a new way to memorialize and remember your pet: The Living Urn.

The Living Urn is a planting system that allows you to incorporate your pet's cremated remains, growing a tree of your choice. You can choose a tree seedling to incorporate with the urn, so you'll be able to watch the tree grow right away, rather than having to wait for a seed to take root and sprout. Or you can plant your own flowers or tree. It's a beautiful way to remember your pet.

Saying goodbye to a pet is never easy, but the Living Urn provides a beautiful reminder every day that your pet lives on in nature. And in case you're wondering, the Living Urn is available for use with human cremated ash, too.

Pets make our lives so much better, but unfortunately their lifespans are unfairly short. As an animal lover, saying goodbye is a fact of life. You can make the time easier by finding special ways to remember your pet, and ensuring that you spend as much time enjoying your pet's company as possible.

So get out there. Make some memories. Have a great time with your pet. Take pictures, play, give your pet special treats. And when the time comes, consider The Living Urn as a beautiful way of remembering your pet after they've passed.
