This time the topic is water, and how much we are using every day. It’s hard to believe that we could ever run out of a natural resource that covers over 70% of the planet, but once you take a look at the chart you may get a better understanding of why conserving water is important. The chart is great because it also gives you alternative choices for daily activities and how much water you would potentially save. To view the full size chart, click here.
Also, a term that is brought up in the accompanying blurb is becoming increasingly relevant: water footprints. We’ve all heard of carbon footprints, but being aware of the amount of water we use is important too, and if we make the effort to reduce our water footprints we can save significant amounts of money as well, which is always a plus!
