New Water Burial Urns Dedicated to Veterans and Fallen Soldiers

THREE RIVERS, CA--(Marketwire - January 20, 2010) - In The Light Urns, a memorial company, released a new line of water burial urns dedicated to the veterans and fallen soldiers of the United States Military. The line has memorials for five defense branches: U.S. Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. These water burial urns are available at In The Light Urns and for funeral directors through United Priority Distributors.

This line is the only burial at sea urn collection dedicated to the fallen soldiers and veterans of the United States Military.

The new collection received a green thumbs-up from the Green Burial Council's eco-certification program. "In The Light Urns is providing a much needed option for the increasing number of military families who are eco-conscious," said Joe Sehee, Executive Director of the Green Burial Council.

In The Light Urns followed up the original Peaceful Pillow with this collection dedicated to the military. While the original burial urns are wrapped with hemp cord and flower embedded paper, the military collection is wrapped with a cotton rope and displays a bold logo of the military branch.

"We are proud and humbled to offer the first military burial at sea urns for those who have served our country," said Susan Fraser, Founder of In The Light Urns.

Peaceful Pillow urns are made of 100% biodegradable materials. A corn starch, water soluble bag, is included for the cremated remains, which are placed inside the paper-based urn. The Peaceful Pillow line has three sizes: a companion urn for two people, an adult urn for a single person, and the shared urn. The shared urn is the smallest of the series and is meant for the separating of ashes, so that several family members can take part in the water burial.

An ongoing shift towards green burial is becoming more apparent in the funeral industry today. With the emergence of the Green Burial Council and several green cemeteries, memorial manufacturers are providing more green options.
