Did you know? It takes an estimated 1,850 gallons of water to produce a pound of beef. That’s a lot of liquid—especially considering the equivalent weight in vegetables requires just 39 gallons of water!

Did you know? Fixing household leaks can save up to 10,000 gallons of water a year.

If 100 people complete today’s ‪#48DaysofBlue challenge to check for leaks, we can save enough water to fill two olympic size swimming pools! → http://48days.blue/1EuC5g4

Did you know? We use approximately 100 billion plastic bags every year. That's enough plastic to circle the Earth 1,300 times!

I use cloth and other reusable bags when I shop. Plastic bags are useful for garbage and other storage needs, however. Still, I think about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch whenever I take one from a store. So, guilt keeps me Earth friendly.

These seahorses act like chameleons-they change their color to their surroundings?
