When you're talking about recycling, water is usually a boring topic and people skip right over it. But did you know
1. In the U.S. between 1950 - 2000 our population has doubled, but we use three times the amount of water. 2. A recent survey showed that by the year 2013 we will have water shortages in 36 states.
3. Hot water takes energy. Cold water also takes up energy, Every year American water Supply And Treatment uses up enough energy to power 5 million homes a year.
4. 75 % of water we use is for our bathroom.
5. If homes in the U.S. all used water efficient appliances then we would save $18 billion dollars a year.
