I read in the Orlando Business Journal, yesterday, that a 2002 Cornell University study reported that:
Each year, conventional burials entomb 827,000 gallons of embalming fluid, 1.6 million tons of concrete, 90,000 tons of steel and 2,700 tons of copper six feet under.
Now that is a staggering! I wonder if anyone has tried to work out how many flowers are laid at the graveside every year?
