Water Facts and Eco Actions
Blog by Julie Urlaub, Founder and Managing Partner at Taiga Company
With oil, natural gas, and energy receiving most of the popular press, the often forgotten resource that presents a growing challenge is the availability of fresh water. Consider these water facts:
The United States uses more water in a day than it uses oil in a year.
In four days, the United States uses more water than the world uses oil in a year.
The U.S. leads the major nations of the world in per person water use--for all uses, from farming and livestock raising to generating electricity, the U.S. requires about 1,300 gallons of water per capita per day.
Home to one third of the earth's trees, the Taiga is the largest land-based biosphere and encircles the globe. Its immense oxygen production literally changes the atmosphere and refreshes the planet. It is this continuous renewal that has shaped Taiga Company's vision to drive similar change in the business world. Taiga Company seeks to be the "oxygen for your business".
