Did you know it takes a lot of water to make our food?
*Water is used to grow plants.
*Water is consumed by animals raised for food; water is also used to grow food these animals eat.
*Water can be polluted by agricultural runoff.
Did you know that food is one of the biggest producers of greenhouse gases (GHGs)?
*Deforestation: trees produce oxygen; when trees are cut down, this process stops and the trees release stored carbon
*Animals release methane, one of the most harmful GHGs to the environment.
*Transportation: where does your food come from? Foods sourced closer to home require less resources.
