Your Water Footprint

A water footprint is a person's total freshwater usage. This goes beyond water used for drinking and bathing which is known as direct water usage. Your water footprint also includes all the water that is involved with manufacturing goods you use, growing (or raising) the food you eat, and producing energy that powers your home. This "behind the scenes" and much larger part is known as virtual water usage.
