New "Save Our Water" Brochure
Save Our Water: The Vegetarian Way is a new full-color, 8-panel brochure that explains how consuming meat is taking a toll on our planet. In particular, it details how the livestock industry has become the world's largest user of fresh water. The primary way that animal agriculture consumes water is by growing the feed that livestock eat. However, this industry contributes to freshwater pollution, the emission of greenhouse gases, the deforestation of the Amazon basin, and other ills as well. These arguments are made in plain yet convincing language, with tables comparing how much water is needed to produce meat to how much is needed to grow vegetarian foods like grains, beans, and legumes. Anyone who reads this brochure will surely consider how much simple dietary choices can cost - or spare - the environment.
