What's Your Water Footprint?
Last weekend marked the opening of a new interactive exhibit at The Ecology Center: Splash! How Good Water Works
(Thanks to Jimmy Cheng Photography for a preview of this unique event!)
A collaboration between The Ecology Center, Hurley H2O, and Zago, this visually-engaging multi-media installation takes visitors on a educational exploration that incorporates art, community, and critical environmental issues.
Featuring 'The Juggernaut', an installation created from over 350 five-gallon water jugs seen in the image above, the exhibit offers a visual representation of each Californian's average daily water footprint (over 1800 gallons!), as well as suggestions as to how that footprint can be reduced.
As we become more aware of the impacts our decisions have on finite resources, it's imperative that we educate ourselves on how the natural environment is affected by our actions, as well as understand the measures that can be taken to change our patterns of consumption and waste.
So, make sure to stop by The Ecology Center, and learn how to defeat your Juggernaut!
