5 awesome things you can do with ashes

Cremation is increasingly popular in the US: in 1950 only 1 in 28 Americans chose cremation, whereas today nearly 1 in 2 Americans are choosing this option for their transition.

With so many people choosing cremation, many people are also trying to figure out what to do with their cremains (that is the technical term for the ashes).  

You can always scatter ashes in places that are meaningful to you. Not all of us have an obvious spot that speaks to us though; so if it is not immediately clear to you where that might be, here are 5 unique other things you can do with cremains:
