Water Go 'Round

Water Go 'Round

May 23, 2012  |  Environmental

With the recent rain and gloomy weather as of late, it’s got me feeling like I’m surrounded by water. Never mind the harbor that sits just blocks south of us here in the office, water is snaking up all around us through the pipes and infrastructure of this building. And while it’s easy to take for granted the readily available energy around us, we here at Orange Element all like to try and do our part to be kind to mother nature.

But did you realize that water conservation goes further than shorter showers and not running faucets? That if you think about it, water is involved with production of practically everything we use or do in a given day.  That the average person in the US uses nearly 2,000 gallons of water a day?! I honestly wasn’t quite aware.

Thankfully, the clever people of GOOD and Levi’s have joined forces to create an interactive infographic that helps shed light on US water consumption and gives tips on ways you can make conscious choices for a better environment. Also, you can get a sense of how much water a day that YOU use by answering the questions in the infographic.

After you take a dive into the inforgraphic, let us know in the comments below what facts particularly shocked you or what new ways will you try to lower your water usage.
