Description

We each eat on average between 500-1300 gallons of water every day. Understanding the virtual water footprint of our food is a great starting point to begin Eating Less Water.

 

Water footprint totals of some popular foods:

1 almond = 1 gallon of water

1 slice of bread- 11 gallons of water

1 pound of lettuce = 10 gallons of water

1 orange = 21 gallons of water

1 apple =33 gallons of water

1 dozen eggs = 276 gallons of water

1 cup cooked rice = 50 gallons of water

1 pound of pasta = 230 gallons of water

1 pound of chicken = 468 gallons of water

1 gallons milk = 720 gallons of water

1 pound of cheese = 414 gallons of water

1 pound of beef = 1800 gallons of water

1 pound of butter = 3602

 

Show action tip: Serve more foods on your plate with lower water footprint totals (i.e. more plants on your plate). It’s better for you and for a river.
