What Is Your Water Footprint?
Have you ever considered how much water you use each day? This infographic walks you through a typical day and shows what changes you can make to use less water.
I don’t expect anyone to make all of these changes at once—if I did, I’d be a complete hypocrite. I rent an apartment, so I can’t exactly buy a dishwasher. And I really don’t want to give up my morning coffee. (Not eating meat balances it out a little, right?)
Just do the best you can and be conscious of the water you use:
- If you pick water instead of soda once a week you will save 1,709 gallons of water a year.
- If you alternate between apples and oranges, you can save 912.5 gallons of water a year (compared with eating only apples).
What do you think? Are there any changes you can make to save water?
