How much water is in your food?

Spoiler alert! If you want to play the game yourself, stop reading and join us on May 17th 4pm-7pm on Grant and Kirkwood for the Bloomington Bike to Work Day Block Party!

Did you know that it takes 30 gallons of water to produce just one gram of protein via beef? Compare that to 5 gallons of water to produce one gram of protein via legumes. We also had containers for 7 gallons of water to represent general veggies, and 15 gallons for pork. All data from waterfootprint.org.

Eating vegan saves animals, is great for your health and workers’ rights, and is the single biggest thing you can do for environmental sustainability!
