Celebrate This St. Patrick’s Day with “Green” Water Food

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by eating food produced with GREEN Water. Not literally green, but food grown with natural rain and moisture.

Water footprint researchers assigned colors to water to help differentiate the types of water sources: blue, green and gray. Blue water is sourced from aquifers, reservoirs, and rivers that scribble across the landscape. Gray is water tainted with nitrogen, the run-off from fertilizer and manure. Rainwater and moisture are green. Green water places the least amount of stress on our water systems.

Key terms to look and ask for:

  • Rain-fed
  • Dry-farmed
  • Holistic-managed
  • Biodynamic
  • Pasture-raised
