One-Minute Mission: Save the Earth!

Posted April 16, 2012 by Christina

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.

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
