The water footprint concept can be used to quantify water use as related to the production of commercial goods. This book shows how consumption relates to water use and illustrates how the water footprint can ultimately be used as a tool to reduce water use. The book raises the issue of sustainable consumption: how can consumers and businesses get involved in reducing the negative impact of the water footprints of final consumer goods?
