Summary
A "water footprint" is the amount of fresh water used to produce the goods and services we consume, including growing, harvesting, packaging, and shipping. For example, one mango uses 82 gallons of water, one 9-ounce stick of butter uses 366, one 7-ounce chocolate bar uses 449, and 5-ounces of ground beef uses 634. Producing a smart phone uses 240 gallons of water, a cotton t-shirt 660, and a pair of jeans 2000. Our current water usage patterns are unsustainable-- only three percent of the world's water is drinkable, and due to climate change, population growth and pollution, water shortages are worsening across the globe. "Your Water Footprint" uses eye-catching infographics with accompanying text to explain how much water it takes to produce an item or carry out an activity, and offer tips on saving water. With knowledge, educated decisions can be made and changes can be implemented to reduce waste
