AnswerPetcaskets can be buried underground but please be sure to check with local authorities/agencies to ensure compliance with local laws.

2. An online company is claiming to offer 100% Biodegradable plastic pet caskets. How is that possible?
We called the company making this claim of their plastic casket's biodegradability and were told that an additive is included in the plastic which requires between "35 to 350 years for the material to degrade" but that they had not tested the material.  Many plastics today may include an additive that will allow the material to degrade when exposed to sunlight which will obviously not work when buried underground.
