When a life ends, another one begins.
Planting a tree is a highly symbolic ritual aimed at perpetuating life. The tree later becomes a place for recollection where memories are rooted.
ROOTS pays tribute with beauty.
ROOTS was created with a strong preoccupation for esthetics, in order to pay tribute in a beautiful way. Through a sober and refined design, it celebrates life with grace.
ROOTS is a prizewinner of the GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN 2018 and a nominee for the GERMAN DESIGN AWARD 2019.
ROOTS can transform cemeteries into forest.
ROOTS, made from recycled coffee grounds and other entirely natural materials (dolomite lime and natural clay), is certified as a green funeral product by the Green Burial Council.
The use of post-consumer coffee grounds honours the sustainable development values and their reutilisation as a biomaterial is highly symbolic of the cycle of life.
An efficient planting system.
Our proven and highly effective planting system contains nutrients specially adapted to forestry. It will allow for the planting of the tree indoors in order to maximize its germination and growth. This ensures that you have the possibility of starting the planting process regardless of the season and time of death. The new biomaterial, made of recycled coffee grounds and lime, was developed to balance the high pH level of the ashes.
We guarantee germination
Each ROOTS urn contains 3 complimentary different species of trees (Canada and USA only - ROOTS WITHOUT SEED is available for other countries):
- Catalpa Speciosa (Deciduous)
- Black Locust (Deciduous)
- Scots Pine (Evergreen)
*Only germination is guaranteed. Certain conditions apply.
ROOTS can also be used in different ways.
While it is highly recommended to start growing the tree indoors, the ROOTS urn can:
- Be planted directly into the earth with the planting system provided
- Be used with a seed or your choice, a seedling or a mature tree (not included)
- Be purchased as an ecological urn for those who do not wish to grow a tree
- Be buried separately from the tree (you can bury the urn in the cemetery and plant the tree in another location that is significant to you).
How does it works ?
ROOTS is also available for your companion.
