  2. People are showering down the block from the MNN office  today — it’s part of a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals  demonstration illustrating the huge amount of water used by the meat  industry. According to PETA’s flier, “it takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to  produce 1 pound of meat, while growing 1 pound of wheat only requires  25 gallons. You save more water by not eating a pound of meat than you  do by not showering for six months! A totally vegan diet requires only  300 gallons of water per day, while a typical meat-eating diet requires  more than 4,000 gallons of water per day.”
