Our new online water calculator helps users understand their unique water footprint and provides personalized tips with simple ways to conserve water.
The calculator, which you can try for yourself at H2OConserve.org, is fun and easy to use, and a great teaching tool for children.
It is especially useful at informing consumers about "virtual water" the water used in growing and processing our food and the hundreds of common items we all use each day.
The Daily Green's Community News section is a forum for our audience to get the word out about issues that matter to them, enlist support, get help and advice, celebrate successes or share humor. The best submissions are personal (why I started this venture) short and to the point (400 words or so) and written in a style that speaks directly to the audience as peers (not like an ad or press release). E-mail submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and include "community news" in the subject line. Photos are also welcome, provided the submitter has rights to publish the image. Be sure to include credit and caption information.
