Your water footprint is the amount of water you use in and around your home throughout the day. It includes the water you use directly (i.e., from a tap) and the water that is used to produce the food you eat, the products you buy, the energy you consume and even the water you save when you recycle. You may not drink, feel or see this virtual water, but it makes up the majority of your water footprint.
