Have you ever thought about how much water goes into making and manufacturing different the foods we eat?
Us neither! We never leave taps running and try and be as eco conscious as we possibly can, but the water in food production? That slipped our mind!
Luckily, these handy illustrations have come along to educate us in the water we use every day, just through the choices we make at the supermarket!
We can't believe the amount of water that goes into manufacturing meat and dairy.
15,000 litres for one kilogram of beef?! So crazy!
17,000 for chocolate? This is terrible news...
Just changing to a veggie diet for one or two nights a week will make a huge dent in our water consumption
Ecology has explained that the huge amount used is because “you have to account for the water the animals drink and also the water that goes into growing their feed."
Thank goodness then, that a largely plant based diet uses so much less on the water front!
Just changing to a veggie diet for one or two nights a week will make a huge dent in our water consumption, so we've decided to give it a go.
While high water foods are consumed on a high level, companies will continue to increase the amount the manufactured, using more water.
Lets make sure everyone knows all the effects on the environment that their breakfast, lunch and dinner has!
