As you can imagine, raising billions of animals each year for food and other animal products uses up a staggering amount of our dwindling water resources. In the United States for example, animal agriculture uses fiftyfive percent of all available freshwater whilst everyday human uses just five percent. Despite this, people are told to take short showers and stop watering their lawns as the most serious culprit, animal agriculture, is deliberately and wilfully ignored.
