(What's the) Water Footprint?

Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The Wildwoods Foundation, a project of Community Partners

Set in a game-show format, visitors are challenged to rank everyday items by the amount of water it takes to make them.

Participants are challenged to rank eight items by the amount of water required to manufacture or grow them: a slice of bread, an apple, a sheet of notebook paper, a cup of coffee, a 2-liter bottle of soda, a gallon of milk, a cheeseburger, and a pair of blue jeans. Upon completion, the number of gallons for each is revealed.
