Crickets do not need as much food and water as other animals to produce protein. They only require 8% of the water as cows do to produce the same amount of protein.
 
Crickets don't harm the ozone layer. They produce 1% of the greenhouse gasses that cows do.
 
It takes 1800 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of beef, but it only takes 1 gallon of water to produce the same amount of protein from a cricket.
