What is your water footprint?

I was browsing through some outdoor hiking blogs the other day and came across this cool site.

Now, working in the water resource industry, the site was very cool to me. I was surprised to find out how much water I consume in a year. I will now make an effort to monitor my water consumption. Since I live in a part of the world that, as of yet, has little, to no water supply problems I think I tend to take it for granted. Every now and then it takes a website such as this to open my eyes again to the global impact my water consumption has. The shirt I wear could have been made in China, with cotton from the US and wool from Ireland, and therefore it has a global impact.

I hope you take the time to view the site and then consider your own impact.
