I thought today I'd borrow this quick little tidbit from the guys at lwoimpactliving.com:
"The United States uses, on average, about 345 BILLION gallons of fresh water per day. To put this in perspective, that is enough water to cover the state of Rhode Island to a depth of a foot – used every day."I encourage you to check out the link for more complete details. What I found most enlightening is the fact that by saving energy and switching to renewable energy sources, not only do we avoid the emission of carbon dioxide and other pollutants, we also save tremendous amounts of water.
