See How Much Water You Use Everyday

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.
