MAYBE YOU’VE EVEN used an online calculator, like this one provided by the Nature Conservancy, to determine how your daily activities contribute to carbon emissions.
But have you heard of a “water footprint”?
It may just be the new buzzword in the eco-movement.
GOOD Magazine explains:
“As we become more and more aware that we may be using water at an unsustainable pace, the idea of water footprints—the amount of water an individual uses—is becoming more common.”
Yet, the magazine notes, calculating one’s water footprint may be even more challenging than calculating a carbon footprint, “since everything you eat and buy used some water to produce.”
