“Imagine All The Water” Tells You How Much Water Is Used To Produce Your Shoes, Paper, Etc.

| 0 comments

Imagine All The Water is a very accessible and interactive site sponsored by the European Commission.

Here’s how The Atlantic describes it:

The site Imagine All the Water would like to remind you of how much water you’re using even when you’re not taking a bath or brushing your teeth. Sponsored by the European Commission, the site brings together a mind-boggling array of estimates about the overall amount of water required to create everyday consumer products. Though the site’s purpose is advocacy — essentially, to scare us into a water-conservational mindset — it also offers a useful reminder of how crazily resource-intensive the most ordinary objects can be.

I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Teaching & Learning About World Water Day.
