From death, new life springs. That's the idea behind the biodegradable Bios Urn, a seed that uses the ashes of a loved one to grow into a tree.

The urn has a seed, soil, and fertilizer, and is filled with ashes. It's then sealed and planted, where a living memorial will grow.

The idea was inspired by CEO Roger Moliné's grandmother, who when planting vegetables, came across a dead bird and instinctively buried it with some seeds.
