  1. This is a huge example showing how much we can all waste while the tap is leaking. Wasting one litre is huge as well. It’s a huge responsibility to turn the tap completely off. Don’t forget about the countries in need of water. They wouldn’t waste a single drop of water. So this chart has fought me that letting the tap leak is a lot worse than I thought.
