Calculate your water footprint

Do It

California, and much of the U.S., has been in a state of "exceptional drought" all summer. This week, the legislature imposed $500 fines on water wasters -- your neighbors who hose down their driveways or water their sidewalks. But experts estimate California will run out of its stored water in the next 12 months. We're all probably wasting some water.

Calculate your water footprint below and figure out where you can cut your usage ASAP!

    I'm not a vegetarian, but after this quiz, I did a lot of reading about how much water the meat-producing industry (especially beef!) uses. I'm having a bit of an ethical crisis about what to do now that I know -- animal rights aren't one of my hot-button issues, but water is! Does anyone know if organic farming uses less water than industrial?
