Really? I don’t have it often, however pepperoni pizza has been known to cross my palate. And, because I am a subscriber to the FoodPrint Newsletter, I just became aware of this fact: One serving of pepperoni pizza uses 53 gallons of water!
Why should we care how much water we use by the choices we make for our daily intake of food? Well, one answer is to conserve water right?
Other reasons: Firefighters, hospitals, gas stations, street cleaners, health clubs, gyms, and restaurants all require large quantities of water to provide services to our communities. Reducing our usage of water now means that these services can continue to be provided.
Knowledge gives us the opportunity to be reliable and conscientious in determining how we live and support the planet’s well-being. When we have facts, we can make informed decisions. Tech4boomers will continue to bring you “news you can use” to participate, to do your part and contribute to the well-being of the planet for future generations. Let’s work at it together.
