URNS ARE , WELL, YESTERYEAR . . .
The process of cremation and placing ashes in an urn is generally agreed by scholars to date back to around 3000 BC, to the Neolithic / Stone Age period. And really not much has changed since then.
The key drawback of any vessel containing cremated remains (including wooden, cardboard, plastic boxes, or within fake concrete rocks) is that there is a very real and eventual risk the vessel will break, spilling the contents.
It’s an ignominious end for a loved one.
That’s the reason we started Reterniti, we thought there has to be a better, smarter way of handling, transporting and memorialising cremated remains.
To us a new fancier box or urn isn’t the solution, it perpetuates the problem.
And a bag full of ashes isn’t all that user-friendly to hold close. A Reterniti Stone is.
