Why being a vegetarian is the most environmental thing you can do!

Paul and I recently found a really interesting website about the effects eating meat has on the environment. Check it out here.

Basically, when you think about all the resources that go into raising an animal for's enormous! And when the average person eats 176 pounds of meat per year....that is a lot of waste happening.

Check out the chart on the website for water usage alone...

It shows the number of GALLONS of water used to produce ONE POUND of these various foods.

Pretty shocking. Even passing on the beef would reduce waste by far.
