What’s your impact?

Curious to know your impact? Take a few minutes and estimate your water-use footprint by answering the simple questions in this water calculator.

At the end of the survey, you’ll be shown an easy-to-read report about your water-use footprint. Your water footprint can be categorized as follows:

  • Green water footprint - How much rainwater you consume
  • Blue water footprint - How much groundwater and surface water you consume
  • Grey water footprint - How much water you pollute

Continue past your direct water use and which is just a small part of your total water footprint, to see  your virtual water use, which includes the amount of water that goes into making the food you eat, the things you buy and the energy you use. You may be surprised to see how much your daily habits not normally associated with water contribute to your total water footprint!


If you'd like to see how small adjustments to your daily habits, like reducing an 8 minute shower to a 6 minute shower, can have an immediate impact on your footprint, use this water use calculator.
