Eco-friendly urn can turn your ashes into a ‘human bath bomb’ at sea

A funeral director has revealed an eco-friendly urn to store ashes that viewers have called a "human bath bomb".

The undertaker from New Braunfels in Texas, who goes by the name @morticianlupi, claimed the urn is 100% bio-degradable, which makes burial at sea much more sustainable.

She unwraps the white matte-looking urn that is sculpted with curved motifs with small opening on the top.

The round vase looks like a big pearl as she holds it on her hand.

Lupi says: "This is our Eco Sphere Salt urn, it's 100% bio-degradable.

"Perfect for ocean burial and dissolves in five minutes."

Viewers were stunned when they saw the product and some called it a big "bath bomb".

One said: "I've always wanted to go out in a bath bomb."

"So cool! I have a hospice patient that would really like this," another wrote. "We're going over his end-of-life wish list now."

A third added: "I want to be a bath bomb but I want plastic babies like the tiny ones inside of the bath bomb so when I dissolve, they are in the water."

Lupi is selling the bio-degradable urn for $245 (£177) and added: "I always call it the bath bomb urn. And I did lick it, it's salty as f***…never again."

It comes after a funeral director gave an insider look of what his typical day looks like.

Laurence Jones, partner of Laurence Jones Funeral Directors, told Mirror Online that there's no two days the same working in his industry.

"We take legal forms to the authorities to authorise the funerals, particularly cremation forms, and if they’re not agreed it can prejudice the funeral," he said.

"You’ve got the funerals themselves that can take up a fair chunk of the day depending on which type of service, whether it’s a religious one or a celebration of life.

"You can be on any one of them for at least two hours. The preparation time takes a while too, with embalming, dressing, showing the deceased in the chapel viewing and sorting out the service leaflets with the family."
