Thanksgiving Water Restoration Bundle
Traveling to see loved ones and enjoying a Thanksgiving feast together takes a surprising amount of water. According to Danny H. Rogers, a professor and agricultural engineer at Kansas State University Research and Extension, it takes over 40,000 gallons of water to produce a Thanksgiving meal of turkey and all the fixings for a family of 8. And most of that is embedded in the raising of the food itself. And according to National Geographic's water footprint calculator, it takes 13 gallons of water to produce one gallon of gasoline and a 700 mile round-trip flight consumes 9,000 gallons of water!
But you can offset the impact of all your Thanksgiving celebrations by purchasing our Thanksgiving Water Restoration Bundle, which will restore 15,000 gallons of water to a critically depleted river or stream. Your purchase will directly contribute to restoring the economic, recreational and ecological vitality of critical freshwater ecosystems. All projects are certified by a qualified third-party verifier to ensure flow is restored to the environment in locations and at a time that will have optimum environmental benefit.
