We all know that the best way to help dimish the number of factory farms in America, and the best way to help the environment as whole, is by going vegan.
But did you know that cows, pigs, chicken, and other animals raised primarily for food are the main consumers of water in America? For example, 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. Think about it, that’s a lot of water! And even more shocking, 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.
So what does this information mean? Aside from all the other damage they do, factory farms waste water.
