When your loved ones pass (or you) what do you do with remains after their wish of being cremated has been carried out. Give them back to Mother Earth at a place of their choosing? Keep them on your mantle? Divide between other family members? Well, now you can be a tree!

Along comes a new idea. Well, maybe not a new idea, but an idea that has come a long ways if it's now new. Why not give life back within your ashes and provide life for decades to come.

Bios Urn is a completely biodegradable urn that contains a single tree seed that is nourished by and absorbs the nutrients from the ashes of your loved one; or you. The urn is constructed from a coconut shell and contains compacted peat and cellulose which are mixed with the ashes and a seed. You can even choose which type of tree you would like to nurture.

I think it's a great idea so people can always be with their loved ones and they can even register their tree with GoogleEarth.

The mobile app determines the coordinates of the tree and registers it to the website where the memorial can be visited online.

There are "BiosParks" across the country that are beautiful and serene settings and are also protected and watched over. They provide habitats for animals, produce oxygen and pretty much a win-win.

Me personally? You bet...plant me in a nice spot in Denali National Park.  How about you?  Where would you want to be planted?
