Water Footprint Chart  »

Good Magazine posts this nice-looking infographic showing the cost, in gallons of water, of various foods and activities. It would have been nice if they had compared a hamburger to a veggie burger instead of a boring-looking salad, and compared beef to tofu or seitan instead of to chicken. And what about the cost of a bottle of water, shipped from, say, Fiji?

Framed this way, I don’t know if these are hard truths hitting home so much as gently rapping. But more of this kind of thing in the national consciousness certainly can’t hurt.
