We all know that the best way to help the Earth is by going vegan.
Chickens, pigs, cattle, and other animals raised for food are the primary consumers of water in the U.S. A single pig consumes 21 gallons of drinking water per day, while a cow on a dairy farm drinks as much as 50 gallons daily. That’s a ton of water! Also, it takes more than 2,500 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of cow flesh, compared to about 219 gallons of water to make 1 pound of tofu.
What does this mean? Factory farms waste water.
