Death is as inevitable as life, and life isn’t complete without death. However, it is one of the most painful and devastating realities of life –whose grief is difficult to overcome. Everyone who has lost a loved one wants to honor their memory in one way or another.  Some like to make a memorial, and others run eulogy shows on the town radio.  

One option gaining popularity is the use of scattering tubes. But what exactly are scattering tubes, and are they the right choice for you when honoring your loved ones? Well, let’s talk about the scattering tubes, and then you can decide for yourself. 

What are Scattering Tubes?

Basically, cremation scattering tubes are containers which are usually made with biodegradable material like cardboard or paper (unless it’s an urn). They are specifically made to hold the cremated remains so you can scatter them. 

They are made with biodegradable material as they exclusively for returning the remains of body go the nature where it belongs. So they need to be made of a material that is friendly to the environment.

Like we discussed, scattering tubes are made with durable yet biodegradable material like cardboard or paper. This choice is made explicitly so that you can honor your loved one’s memory while keeping the environment safe because some people decide to burn or bury the tube after they scatter the ashes.
