The Water Footprint of Eggs, Meat, and Other Products

by Christopher Paul on February 3, 2014

According to this website (and like any amateur blogger/writer guy, I did not do any fact checking and I’m taking their word… as you do), it takes about 52 gallons of water to produce an egg just over 2 oz. You don’t even want to know how inefficient it is to produce bio-fuels made of soy (corn, beets, and cane sugar are much better).

Thankfully, it only takes about 40 gallons to make a single US pint of beer.
