Wonderwater is a project developed by Jane Withers and Kari Korkman to raise awareness of global water issues and design for a sustainable future. The water footprint is an increasingly important tool for understanding our water consumption and using water responsibly and sustainably. The idea is similar to the carbon footprint, but with a focus on the use of water. We use large amounts of domestic water for washing, drinking and cooking, but considerably more water for producing food, paper, cotton and almost every other physical product we consume.
