50 Baths= 1 Steak. Tsk Tsk.



It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat, while growing 1 pound of wheat only requires 25 gallons. 


You save more water by not eating a pound of meat than you do by not showering for six months!


A totally vegan diet requires only 300 gallons of water per day, while a typical meat-eating diet requires more than 4,000 gallons of water per day.


50 Baths= 1 Steak


Think about it. 


Happy World Water Day!
