Did you know that what you EAT can impact WATER SAVINGS?  Here are some statistics from National Geographic.

•It takes approximately 1,000 gallons of water per day to produce the average American diet.  This is more than the global average water footprint of 900 gallons per person per day for diet, household use, transportation, energy and consumption of material goods.

•Eat less meat and dairy is a way slim down your water footprint.  It takes a lot of water and energy to process these products.  Choose grass-fed beef (vs. grain-fed) whenever possible because grass-fed  utilizes less water and energy.

•A serving of poultry costs approximately 90 gallons of water to produce.  When you BUY LOCAL, you save on transportation and other costs (financially and environmentally).

•On average, a vegan, a person who doesn’t eat meat or dairy indirectly consumes nearly 600 gallons of water per day LESS than a person following the average American diet.

•A cup of coffee takes 55 gallons of water to make, with most of that water used to grow the coffee beans.

So, GREEN YOUR DIET!
