At the Vallejo Earth Day, the BAVeg table focused on water usage and food choices, and distributed information about factory farming, nutrition and recipes, and animal rights. For fun, participants were asked a randomly selected question related to food and the environment. As a “thank you” for participating, they were gifted with an organic vegan chocolate bite donated by Sjaak’s Organic Chocolates. We will have a longer post soon with photographs. Thank you to our volunteers who made this possible: Debbie, Tonia, Jamie, and Tammy
Here are the questions that were used:
Q 1: HOW MUCH WATER IS NEEDED TO PRODUCE ONE POUND OF BEEF? (IN GALLONS)
Q2: HOW MUCH WATER DOES A DAIRY COW DRINK EACH DAY? (IN GALLONS)

Because thinking about food choices and environmental impact is such a dry topic (pun intended), sometimes we quipped “Answer a question for vegan chocolate!”
Here is the complete list of questions and answers used at the BAVeg booth at Vallejo Earth Day. Please consider taking the quiz first — without looking at the answers, below. Here is a link to the questions only…
For those pondering the questions, here are the answers and the sources we used. Kudos to Debbie who led the research and selection on the questions.
