The topic of Food Art Week 2019
Life on our planet started in the water. We, ourselves are 70% water, like our planet. Yet our oceans suffocate, our rivers are polluted, many living beings have no access to clean water. Plastic pollution, nanoparticles, pesticides and antibiotics are damaging our freshwater and oceans. Only 2% of the total water on our planet is clean.
By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. Industrialized livestock farming is draining and polluting water, threatening our planet’s most precious resource. Globally, 29% of the water footprint for agricultural production goes to raising animals. 98% of that water is to grow their feed.
Water scarcity is a critical challenge to the future of sustainable food production. Since the water footprint for beef is six times larger than for pulses, our meat consumption is throwing the planet off-balance.
