According to the Cremation Association of North America, more than 40 percent of families choose cremation, and that percentage is anticipated to approach 60 percent in the next 12 years. Scattering ashes after cremation has become popular because it helps people ritualize their grief after the passing of a loved one. The problem is that scattering ashes is often messy and unpredictable – and you have only one chance to get it right. Because scattering a loved one’s ashes is intended to bring closure, if done incorrectly, it can be emotionally devastating. That’s where Angel Aire comes in.
Angel Aire is the only product of its kind intended to accomplish a scattering service in a clean and controlled event. Ashes are loaded into an Angel Aire urn, and with a pull of the release knob, projected upwards like an ascending cloud. The result is a fine cloud of ashes that rapidly rises into the air, an elegant symbol that represents the immortal soul ascending into the heavens.
If more than one person would like to perform the ash scattering, the Angel Aire urn allows for multiple start/stop sessions. This also allows those performing the services to scatter ashes of a loved one in multiple locations in a convenient, dignified, and reverent method. Through implementing an easy way to scatter ashes, Angle Aire is intended to make the final send-off more heartfelt and memorable.
Because the death industry is such a large market – $17 billion a year according to CNBC’s recent documentary, “Death: It’s a Living” –Angel Aire has huge potential for growth. Angle Aire has been issued a patent with 15 claims, which also includes scattering services for pets and other animals. Through creating an easy way to implement the scattering ceremony, Angel Aire is poised to make a difference in helping families find closure.
