Approximately 400 billion gallons of water are used in the United States per day.
For Earth month Wyland (Artist of the Sea) created a friendly conservation competition between cities across the nation. www.mywaterpledge.com drives to save energy, reduce landfill waste, and encourage overall resource conservation by reducing their "water footprint."
Check out my video interview with Wyland about his program. www.mywaterpledge.com
A few water facts
