Did you know that the largest user of fresh water is the livestock industry?
Water is directly needed for drinking and cleaning of animals. And that’s a lot
of water when we’re talking about over 10 billion animals raised for food in
the United States alone every year. But the biggest way animal agriculture
consumes water is indirectly. A large amount of fresh water is used to grow
the feed that livestock animals eat. By comparison, it takes a lot less water
to grow the grains, beans, legumes, fruits, and vegetables that make up a typical vegetarian diet.
