What's your water footprint?
GOOD Magazine helps show just how big of a footprint we make from breakfast to dinner, and how a few simple changes can save over 2,000 gallons a month:
Just to put some perspective on that transparency, ponder this for a moment:
- The average trash barrel is able to hold 32 gallons
- A mid-sized car can theoretically hold over 800 gallons if filled with water
- The difference in the amount of water it takes to produce a pound of chicken and a pound of beef is enough to fill almost two whole cars.
