Know Your Water Footprint.
While I was browsing my favorite website (other then the Minnesota Energy Challenge of course) – National Geographic environment – I found a couple great interactive features that help you learn about how much water you are using. They helped me realize where I can save water other than the obvious shorter showers.
- Hidden Water Use – Who knew that 1 pound of cheese requires 600 gallons of water?! I sure didn’t. This feature shows how much water other common foods and products use.
- Water Footprint Calculator - The average individual in America uses 2,000 gallons a day. How do you measure up to the average use? This will also help you see what category you can to improve on the most; home, diet, stuff or energy.
- Water Wiz Game-A great interactive game for all those junior environmental smarties.
