Scattering Ashes: 5 Unique Ideas

1. At Sea

If your loved one always loved the ocean, consider holding a funeral on a ship. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, you may scatter cremated remains at sea, so long as you’re at least three miles off-shore and you report the burial in writing to the EPA within 30 days of the ceremony.

2. In Lakes, Streams and Rivers

For the nature lover in your life, the scattering of remains in a local stream, lake or pond is another viable option. While funeral laws vary locally, some states, such as Texas, have pretty lenient laws in regards to scattering. In Texas, grieving family members have free rein to scatter cremated remains in waterways.

3. On Private Property

Scattering cremated remains on private property is at the sole discretion of the property owner. As long as you’ve asked for and received permission, you’re free to scatter off scenic overlooks or along favorite mountain trails.

4. Creating Jewelry

Cremated remains can even be incorporated into jewelry. There are many options such as necklaces, rings, and bracelets. This is a lovely way to keep your loved one close to you.

5. Oil Paintings and Pottery

Cremated remains can even be incorporated into pottery or oil paintings. An artist combines the cremated remains of a loved one with the actual oil paint or pottery.

The dispersing of a loved one’s remains should bring closure and comfort to those left behind. However you choose to commemorate a life, we are there to help.
