Passages Introduces Two New Designs of Scattering Tubes
ALBUQUERQUE, NM (September 2015) – Passages International Inc. adds Navy and Mountain View designs to its already successful collection of scattering tubes. Each tube accommodates 200 cubic inches of cremated remains and has a ‘matching mini’ with an identical design which holds 20 cubic inches. Having a mini size in each design is convenient for families who wish to split the remains and scatter in more than one location or on multiple occasions. It also provides families with the option of purchasing a permanent urn along with a mini tube for scattering a portion of the remains.
“The scattering tubes have been tremendously successful because they provide families with a functional, yet affordable, urn and funeral homes with a profitable alternative to the plastic box,” says Passages’ President, Darren Crouch. “Our existing 14 designs remain very popular, but we added two others to accommodate those families who appreciate the scenic beauty of snowcapped mountains or the dignified elegance of navy blue. Many of our customers have incorporated the tubes as their minimum container and are no longer using the cardboard or plastic box. This is because the tubes are more appealing to families and allow the funeral home to earn a few extra dollars on their cremation packages.”
The Passages Collection of Scattering Tubes is designed and engineered to simplify the scattering process. The tubes are durable, dignified and simple to use. Each features a convenient removable lid and an industry-first, perforated “push in” tab that opens easily prior to scattering. They contain no metal or plastic components and can be recycled after use. The Scattering Tubes are suitable for “in-cabin” airline transportation.
The Collection now includes 16 beautiful designs: Ascending Dove, Autumn Woods, Bluebell Forest, Burgundy, Camouflage, Forget Me Not, Mountain View, Navy, Ocean Sunset, Patriot, Rainbow Pond, Rose, Silver Lining, Sunflower Fields, The 19th Hole and White Leather. There is also a Teddy Bear design available exclusively in our mini size.
Since 1999, Passages International, Inc. has led the funeral industry with the largest selection of innovative and environmentally-friendly urns, caskets and memorial products.
