Turn Your Cremated Ashes into a Tree
Have you ever wanted to have your cremated ashes turned into a tree? Well now you can! Roger and his team invented a way to add cremains to a planter that would look at home on any patio or front porch, but that contains the ashes of your beloved…either two or four legged friend. Using a system that keeps the acidic ashes away from the tender young plant, the Bios Urn protects the sapling until it is ready to transferred to your garden or nearby forest.
Questions I prepared for Roger
- Tell me a little bit about yourself. What is your background, and how did it lead you to become part of the Bios Urn team?
- Who are at the visionaries for the Bios Urn, and what is their story?
- Tell us more about the Bios Urn. What is it made of, and how does it work?
- Why you believe the Bios Urn is an important product?
- How is the Bios Urn superior to other methods of internment?
- What long-term tests have been performed with the Bios Urn, and what results do they show?
- A former guest on the podcast, Susanne Wiigh-Masak, inventor of the Promessa system, which first deconstructs the body before converting it to compost, claims the Bios Urn is inferior to her process because it does not deconstruct: a process she claims mimics the natural process of animals that chew a dead thing before depositing it on the earth. She also claims burying is unnatural, as no other living creature buries its dead (only humans). How would you respond to her criticisms?
- What challenges did you encounter during the development of the product?
- I understand you have a kick starter program underway. Tell me more about that.
- Why is there not a new production run planned for another two years?
- Where is the product manufactured?
- How do you plan to distribute the Bios Urn to customers?
What is next for the Bios Urn team?
