Water is a scarce resource as less than 3% of water on Earth is freshwater. Today 894 million people lack access to drinking water and that is about three times the population of the United States. We need to know our water footprint. For example, it takes 75 litres of water to produce 1 litre of beer, and 2400 litres of water for a hamburger. That means that a meal is equal to an average shower for a month.
Companies like Coca-Cola and Nestle are pillaging water resources through privatization. It currently takes about 2 litres of water to make 1 litre of Coca-cola, that’s an estimated 300.19 billion litres of water a year. That’s enough water for the whole world for 6 years!
