    Not too many surprises in the graphic, although I wasn’t aware of the difference in water use between a cup of coffee and a cup of tea. Also, it was a surprise to learn that more water goes into producing a glass of wine than a pint of beer. I wonder if the amount of water involved in that pint of beer drops a bit if you buy it in returnable growlers at your local microbrewery, rather than in aluminum cans or throw-away glass bottles.

  2. Maybe grapes take more water than hops and barley. Just a guess.

    Our recycling center takes both aluminum cans and glass bottles, so does that give us permission to buy beer and wine? I notice they did not mention the cost of watering a ridiculous lawn.

    Yeah, let me spend money I don’t have to replace all the appliances, faucets and the toilet in my house. Let me remodel and re-plumb the kitchen so I can have a dishwasher too. :p Not happening.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
