Freshwater is vital to life, and as the world’s population grows, so does our use of it.
Water footprints help individuals, businesses and countries because they reveal water use patterns, from the individual level all the way to the national level. They shine a light on the water used in all the processes involved in manufacturing and producing our goods and services. A water footprint also accounts for the amount of water contaminated during manufacturing and production because that water is made unusable and is, essentially, taken out of the system.
The Water Footprint Network, whose research provides data that drive our calculator, splits water footprints into three corresponding categories:
Blue Water Footprint: The amount of surface water and groundwater required (evaporated or used directly) to make a product.
Green Water Footprint: The amount of rainwater required (evaporated or used directly) to make a product.
Grey Water Footprint: The amount of freshwater required to mix and dilute pollutants enough to maintain water quality according to certain standards (like the ones established in the US Clean Water Act) as a result of making a product.
