Quick Options for Scattering Ashes
Not everyone wants to have a loved one’s ashes on display or in a columbarium niche. If you want to scatter your loved one’s ashes, whether because of convenience or symbolism, you can do so without even purchasing an urn. You can ask any Cremations provider and they can recommend lots of options to carry the ashes to the location where you will be scattering them.
An inexpensive and quick option that many people use is a large coffee can. It may not be the most glamorous option in which to carry ashes, but it can do perfectly fine. It also has the benefit of being easy to open and of not telling everyone who passes by that there are cremated remains inside. For people who value their privacy, this can be a good option.
Mason jars are also a great, homey option that can be symbolically perfect for a lot of people. These mason jars can be easily decorated, with paint, ribbons, and lots more. It can be a perfect way to include children into the scattering, allowing them to start processing their grief. Mason jars are also very sturdy and can be sealed well, so that you do not have to worry about spillage when you transport the ashes to the scattering site.
Biodegradable scattering urns can be a good choice for people who are concerned about the environment. This kind of urn is useful because it can also work for water burials or regular burials, since it will break down easily. They can be made of paper, cardboard, clay, wicker, and lots of other biodegradable materials.
An option that many providers have seen recently is the use of wine bottles or other similar containers to transport the ashes to the scattering site. This can be a unique way to honor your loved one. Because there are so many options of wine bottles, including different sizes and colors, you can choose the one that best fits your needs.
If your loved one was an avid gardener, why not use some container from their garden, like a watering can, for the ashes? It can be an appropriate way of honoring your loved one, as well as a convenient one for scattering, especially if you will be doing so over water. Buckets work, too, and anything else that your loved one used a lot in the garden.
