Passages' Memento Water Urn is Featured in Prestigious Omega Lifetime Magazine
Water burial isn’t just for avid fishermen, seafarers or boaters, in-fact over 70% of those that intend to scatter cremated remains say they will do it in water. There are many contributing factors to the increasing interest in water burial. Many people believe this to be a means of connecting, or re-connecting with Mother Nature. Naturally, such a ritual should be environmentally-friendly. There is no biodegradable urn better designed for family and friends to experience the utmost in participation and memorialization during this ceremony than Memento.
Rapidly gaining exposure, Memento was just featured in the water edition of the world-renowned Omega Lifetime watch magazine. Having an exclusive distribution to over 200,000 retailers and Omega watch customers from around the globe, the magazine is educating discerning customers about this cutting-edge water burial option.
Earlier this year, Memento competed against over 4400 other entries from 60 countries to win the 2011 Red Dot Award. Introduced in 1955, the Red Dot design award has become the world’s largest and most distinguished design competition. Red Dot signifies ‘belonging to the best in design and business’. The Memento, as unique as the individual it embodies, sets the bar high as it takes water burial to the next level.
“Personally attending the 2011 Red Dot Product Design Awards in Germany this summer, along with companies like Apple and Bosc, whose products such as the iPhone 4 also received awards, was exhilarating,” says Passages’ President, Darren Crouch. “The ongoing exposure that Memento is getting worldwide reinforces Passages’ commitment to truly unique and functional product offerings which benefit our customers and the families who use them. Your urn selection is not complete without this internationally-recognized, award-winning product.”
Handcrafted in the United States with antique molds from non-toxic, food-grade, pressed recycled paper, the Memento allows families to personally contribute to a meaningful ceremony prior to placing the urn in water, watching it float briefly then witnessing the graceful disappearance to the bottom where it will dissolve over time. On the handmade paper cards provided with the urn, participants write messages for the deceased and place these notes into the top of the Memento. To further personalize the urn, messages may be drawn or written onto its exterior.
Passages goes above and beyond to help you exceed your families expectations by making a monetary donation in memory of the deceased to an ocean conservation organization dedicated to protecting our oceans for future generations.
