Have you ever asked yourself "how...
much water do I use a day?" Well, you probably use far more water than you think. The water you use for drinking, cooking, showering etc. is only a tiny fraction of the water you actually use. See here why.

Top 5 facts about your actual use of water

1

Your actual water use

The daily use of freshwater per person is 3,400 liters (global average). Most of this water (over 90 percent) is not used because we take long showers - we use it as “virtual water” through the products we buy.


2

You use water all over the world

As you read this, water is used all over the world to provide you with the food, clothing, electronics etc. you will buy in the time to come.


3

Water use varies widely

An average person's daily use of freshwater differs a lot between countries. The United States has the highest consumption with 6,800 liters per person. Yemen has the lowest with 1,700 liters per person.


4

What can you do?

You can help to improve the global water situation. Don't stop drinking water. And don't stop showering. Instead, look at the products you buy, and support those companies who take responsibility for their water usage.


5

Recycling also works!

For example, aluminum products made from recycled aluminum take just 17 percent of the water required to make the same product from new aluminum.



Your actual use of water

The number is based on a annual average water footprint of 1.24 million liters per person equivalent to 3400 liters daily. The actual number varies between countries (and, of course, persons).
