“Many countries around the world are running out of drinking water faster than nature can replenish it. According to the United Nations World Water Assessment and the University of Wisconsin, the average supply of water per person will drop by a third over the next 20 years because of population growth, pollution and expected climate change. While our perception may be that we have an inexhaustible supply of water, the Fresh Water Society tells us that it takes 16 gallons to grow one apple and 3,000 gallons to raise one pound of beef. So it’s evident that significant water needs go far beyond the drinking fountain or the shower.” Above quote taken from www.bhgrealestate.com.
