Did you know?

From the Pulse Pledge Challenge:

To produce one pound of meat requires roughly 800 - 1800 gallons of water, but to produce one pound of pulses takes only 43 gallons of water.

I can confirm that, roughly, from experience, having grown two and a half pounds of Christmas limas on one teepee the first year of this drought.

Think about it - it's not just the global warming contribution of that hamburger, but the water use.

To produce 1 lb. of meat requires roughly 800-1,800 gallons of water, but to produce 1 lb. of pulses only takes 43 gallons of water!
