World Water Day: How Much Is at 'Steak'?

Did you know that it takes 4,000 liters of water to produce one steak? That’s right, in addition to contributing to cruelty to animals, unhealthy eating habits, and global warming, factory farming and raising animals only to kill them accounts for more than half of the water use in the United States. Check out PETA Germany’s World Water Day Installation to help prove the point.



You can save more water by not eating 1 pound of beef than you can by giving up showers for an entire year. In a world where roughly 1.1 billion people lack access to clean water—something most of us take for granted, this is just one more reason why you should go vegan for people, and the planet.

This World Water Day, do something to make a difference for both humans and animals—try veganism!

Stay loud!

    This is so awesome! A great idea to show people how much water is used to produce the meat they eat…

    People often forget how much water is needed in factory farming!

    We’ve just been talking about this is my AP Enviromental Science class! I feel so proud to be able to tell everyone in my class that I already know this stuff! :)

    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!
