What’s Your Water Footprint?

California’s historic drought has drawn national attention to water use, and a growing number of people are looking for ways to cut back. But where to begin?

After all, the water that comes out of your faucet is only part of your total “water footprint.” The food you eat, the things you buy, and your energy use also contribute.

Now a new water footprint calculator from the GRACE Communications Foundation can help you add up all of the water you use each day. By taking this simple quiz, you’ll find the hidden ways you’re wasting water and learn new ways to conserve. Try it and find out the size of YOUR water footprint!
