Over 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water, but only 1% of that is available for human consumption. Conservation matters. The less water we waste, the more water we have when we need it – like during this year’s drought.
This infographic from elocal.com helps visualize the amount of water used by an average home in the U.S. Comparing regular appliances and plumbing with water-saving fixtures really shows how much we could save, both in water and dollars. New appliances come out all the time. Some are high-tech and some are very simple.
