Water and Hamburgers

Hamburgers don't immediately evoke water. Yet, a National Geographic online article indicates a "typical hamburger can take 630 gallons to produce." Other foods use water in hidden ways, and the same article holds a link to interactive information about those ways.

Catholic churches are calling attention to Lent as a time 1) to learn more about the finite and sensitive environment; and 2) to allow lenten practices, which assist the environment, flow into daily living year round. This National Geographic online article is a place to begin.
