Water Footprint Calculator

This free tool, available in both English and Spanish, illustrates how everyday actions – from washing dishes to watering the lawn to buying groceries – impact water use. The tool links to over 100 water saving tips, and the site has grown to include middle- and high-school lesson plans as well as reference material about water use and the connections between water and food, energy and consumer products (Source).
