Why a HOW TO EAT LESS WATER podcast? In this first episode I share with you how I came to move my water conservation from the shower after selling 80K shower timers to the kitchen. Every drought we are told to focus on the water we can see like the water from our sprinkler heads, our showers, and water hose. Those actions are important but a drop in the bucket in comparison to the water stored in our refrigerators and pantries. Seven out of every 10 gallons of water is used to grow and produce our food and we each eat on average between 500-1300 gallons of virtual water everyday. I understood if I was going to be the most effective at saving water I had to move out of the shower and into the kitchen.
Can I as an individual eater make a difference on water systems around the world? I took my question directly to farmers and food producers around the nation, traveling the distance of 16,000 miles. What I learned I wrote in the pages of my book EAT LESS WATER:THE SOLUTION TO WATER SHORTAGES IS IN THE KITCHEN. I speak to groups of all sizes, deliver food workshops, host events, have found myself on radio and television, and always I get the same set of questions: What should I buy? Where should I shop? What are the things I should be doing in my kitchen to eat less water?
So this podcast is answering those question.
