WHAT’S YOUR WATER FOOTPRINT?

WATER-FOOTPRINT1

 

Summer is officially here and there is no better way of celebrating the weekend than a day out grilling with friends and family. However,  the chart above makes you think a little when placing that juicy piece of steak on the grill. This will definitely be a challenge for us here at the office, since we sure do love our Friday BBQ’s! On the other hand, since one of our urinals saves enough water per year to produce an average of 30 pieces of steak, I think we are good right? All jokes aside, we hope you have a great weekend!
