Social media apps and websites have implemented strategies to fight against inappropriate behavior online, but it’s nearly impossible to keep people from creating new accounts to target victims. Wayne Brady and his ex-wife, Mandie, have kept their keen eyes on their 17-year-old daughter Maile Brady’s social media use, and they’ve noticed that grown men have been sliding into her DMs with improper messages. He discussed an incident his ex-wife recently had to deal with when appearing on The Talk.

“Mandie monitors Maile’s Instagram and social media because even when she’s near-grown—’cause she’ll be 18 in February, you are still a child, so we have to monitor that,” he said. “And these grown men see her dancing and whatnot, and they just slid in. Mandie got on the line with one of them and was, you know, texting back and forth and he was talking slick until he realized that it was Mandie. And then she’s like what the hell are you doing? And he’s like, ‘Oh, I just broke up with my girlfriend, and I just saw her.’”
That was an unacceptable answer for the protective father. “That doesn’t mean anything. You tell that to yourself when we put you in jail,” Brady added. “You can talk all about your post-breakup relationship then.” The actor said he’s “very passionate about” protecting children on the internet and is “going to start working on an initiative.”
“I think the social media, Instagram, Facebook—I love you all, but you need to be on it.” Brady recognizes that there are ways to report harassment or bullying and users can be blocked, but he believes that until there are real consequences for actions, the behavior will just continue.

Biodegradable Urns for a Sustainable Farewell Which Honors Nature’s Cycle
The world is increasingly becoming more conscious of environmental impact over time. And from the metal straws of our drinks to the paper tote bags we carry, almost all essentials of daily life are moving towards sustainability. Now, even our final farewells are evolving. Biodegradable urns, offered by Premium Urns, an Australian-owned and operated company with over 12 years of experience, are designed to provide a more eco-friendly and meaningful way to say goodbye to our loved ones.
Biodegradable Urns for Various Purposes
Biodegradable urns come in various forms to suit different purposes and preferences. At Premium Urns, they offer an array of biodegradable options, each serving a unique role:
- Bio Scattering Urns: These urns are crafted from biodegradable materials such as cardboard and are designed for scattering ashes in natural settings like beaches or mountains. They provide a beautiful and eco-conscious way to release the ashes, allowing the remains to return to nature.
- Ground Burial Bio Cremation Urns: Designed for more traditional ground burials, these urns are made from biodegradable materials that can peacefully merge with the earth over time. They are an excellent choice for those who prefer a more conventional resting place for their loved ones.
- Water Burial Bio Cremation Urns: If the intention is to release ashes at sea, Premium Urns offers a specialized selection of water urns. These urns are crafted to gracefully submerge in deep ocean waters when released off the side of a boat. They ensure a serene and eco-friendly final voyage for your loved one.
Choosing the Right Biodegradable Urns
Selecting the right biodegradable urn is a thoughtful process, but you must consider the following factors while making your choice:
- Location: Think about where you wish to scatter or bury the ashes. The type of urn you choose should also align with the chosen location, whether it’s a beach, a mountaintop, the soil, or the sea.
- Material: Biodegradable urns are made from eco-friendly materials that will breakdown in their final environment. While choosing your material, make sure that it resonates with your environmental values.
- Purpose: Consider the intended purpose of the urn. If you plan to scatter the ashes, a scattering urn is ideal. If a traditional styleground burial is your preference, opt for a ground burial biodegradable urn.
- Specialized Water Urns: If you plan a sea burial, be sure to select from the ‘Water’ cremation urns specifically designed for this purpose. These urns are engineered to sink slowly, allowing for a dignified and eco-conscious release.
A Sustainable and Compassionate Choice
Premium Urns understands the importance of making sustainable choices during a time of loss. Their biodegradable urns not only offer an eco-friendly option but also reflect a deep respect for the natural world and the cycle of life and death.
