POOR ANNA

TORTURED EVEN AFTER LIFE
BEAUTY CAN BE A GREAT BURDEN IF YOU CANT PROTECT YOURSELF. SHE SUFFERED CHILD ABUSE. THE MOTHER COULDNT PROTECT HER.
REALLY MAKES YOU THINK, DONT WANT FRIENDS WORRYING ABOUT MY WAY OUT. IF I COULD I'D GO GREEN. BACK TO THE FERTILE EARTH.

Each year, 22,500 cemeteries across the United States bury approximately: ~ embalming fluid: 827,060 gallons, which includes formaldehyde~ caskets: 90,272 tons of steel ~ caskets: 2,700 tons of copper and bronze ~ caskets: 30-plus million board feet of hardwoods~ vaults: 1,636,000 tons of reinforced concrete ~ vaults: 14,000 tons of steel (Compiled from statistics by Casket and Funeral Association of America, Cremation Association of North America, Doric Inc., The Rainforest Action Network, and Mary Woodsen, Pre-Posthumous Society)

ARE THERE ANY GREEN BURIAL GROUNDS ON THE WEST COAST?

One of a half dozen natural cemeteries in the U.S. is outside San Francisco: Forever Fernwood (www.foreverfernwood.com). A number of groups in California are looking at establishing natural cemeteries elsewhere (in Humboldt county, for example).

I wrote about the first green cemetery in the U.S. -- Ramsey Creek Preserve -- in my book on natural burial, Grave Matters (www.gravematters.us). Information about the others is in the appendix.
