Los Angeles, CA – December 14, 2015) –Grants from the Pollination Project and A Well Fed World along with a successful crowdfunding campaign have provided Los Angeles based artists Karen Fiorito and Alex Arinsburg the means to secure two 14 foot x 48 foot billboards in the Downtown and Silverlake areas. Ten additional 5 foot x 11 foot billboards are being displayed in Hollywood, Culver City, Santa Monica, Marina Del Rey and other locations. These billboards will be on view from November 30 – December 27, 2015. (Specific location list provided below.) According to a recent study, 47% of California’s total water is used up by Animal Agriculture. 1300 gallons of water is required to make one hamburger versus 42 gallons for one veggie burger. Consequently, California residents are required to reduce water consumption by 25%; even though residential water use accounts for only 4% of California’s total water footprint. “I feel like the information about the meat and dairy industry’s impact on the drought is not getting out to the public. This is our way of getting the message out to the masses and inspiring people to change their behavior to reduce water consumption,” says artist Karen Fiorito.
