Reduce Your Water Footprint

Do you know what your water footprint is?

The average American uses approximately 2,000 gallons of water a day through their home, yard, diet, energy, and consumer choices. The good news is there is plenty you can do to reduce your water footprint and help keep our rivers, lakes, wetlands, and underground aquifers wet.

How about a rain barrel?

Installing a rain barrel at your home, school, church, or other community building is an easy way to start reducing your water footprint. A rain barrel system collects and stores rain water from your roof that would otherwise flow into storm drains and streams, picking up pollutants along the way. You can save 1,300 gallons of water a year with one rain barrel. You’ll save money on your water bill too!

River Network is partnering with The Coca-Cola Company and our member organizations across the country to help more people get recycled rain barrels and learn how to install them through rain barrel workshops. Scroll down to see if there’s an upcoming workshop in your area.
