Chapter One and Water Use

I finally started reading the book today, and in the first chapter there’s a lot of comparisons telling how much energy is used to create various types of food. With that in mind, I thought I would share an infographic that I saw a while ago showing how much water is required for various things:

  • What is Choices That Matter?

    I'm a guy named John, and I do most of the writing around here. I went from a really active lifestyle to a really inactive lifestyle very quickly and my body is noticing. On top of that I'm worried about what's happening to our planet, so, I'm trying to do something about it.

    For Christmas I received the book Food Matters, which I found very interesting and inspired me to start changing. Check out my first post for the beginning of the story.
