Seeing Samantha’s post on water conservation kits reminded me how much water we use in the US compared to others in the world. The above data is from UNDP Human Development Report 2006.

For your reference, 1 liter = 0.264172052 US gallons.

I hope there are a lot of related posts that come from this post – question some of the assumptions, track your water usage per day, find out where your water comes from, and share ideas for conservation.
