(Detroit, MI) -- A PETA member says the group will pay overdue water bills for nearly a dozen Detroit families who are willing to go vegan for a month. A statement from the organization says it takes about 25-hundred gallons of water to produce just a pound of meat, but only about 155-gallons to produce a pound of wheat. The offer comes in the wake of thousands of Detroiters facing water shutoffs due to non-payment. Anyone interested in participating in PETA's program needs to send a copy of their most recent overdue water bill and their pledge to go vegan for one month to the organization's main office by August 1st.
