The following statistics caught my attention this weekend:

  • The World Health Organization says a person needs 50 liters of water each day to meet basic human needs.
  • The average person in the U.S. uses 300 to 378 liters per day.

If I had a little pie chart of my own use, I’m guessing the shower would account for the biggest slice. I do love a steamy shower in the winter! The kitchen sink and the toilet are probably next, except on laundry days. I wonder how many other uses would be in that chart. And I wonder just how much bigger the shower slice would be. I wonder how egregiously clean I am.
