Through a series of simple questions about daily routines, this innovative Water Footprint Calculator from Grace Communications totals not only the water we use from the tap, but also the water it takes to produce the food we eat, the energy we use and the products we buy.

As part of the package, links to over 100 water-saving tips are offered to help us lower our water footprint.
