Is It Legal to Scatter Ashes on Lake Michigan?


The simple answer is “No.”

A newspaper article from 2013 explains:

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources does not allow scattering of cremated ashes on public lands or waterways.

And that includes Lake Michigan, says DNR spokesman William Cosh.

Looking for New Ideas for Biodegradable Urns


We’d like your opinion!

What designs, shapes, etc. do you think families would like in a biodegradable urn?

Our Urn Store – – is developing new designs for biodegradable urns. Bio urns have cremains put in them and then they are placed in the ocean where they float for a brief time, sinking slowly to the bottom…
