NOTE: Our Water Footprint Calculator accounts for major water-using activities and behaviors. We used data from water use survey results and national averages of water use for energy, shopping and food consumption. Your results are not an exact measurement but rather an estimate based on your choices and habits. Your footprint varies day-to-day based on your water fixture flow rates, your diet, your energy use and your purchases.
