What is Your Water Footprint?

What does water mean to you? How you use it, and even think about it, depends a lot on where you're from. If you're lucky you probably don't think about where your water comes from, where it goes, or worry about having enough. But for many, clean water is a luxury and can be a matter of life and death.
