Water is one of the most important aspects of human life on earth and yet most people have no idea how much they use on a daily basis. The abundance of water makes it easy to forget that all the technology we utilize can require upwards of 1,200 gallons a day in the rich world. A simple shower can use up to 11 gallons of water alone. A bath is almost twice as much.
Even the clothing that we wear can require thousands of gallons in order to create and a couple of pounds of meat can require the same. Overall, living in the rich world can be comfortable, but often leads to over consumption of water while there are over a billion people with no access at all. For all of us, this should be food for thought.
