In North America and in Europe, the average individual uses between 200
liters (44 gallons ) and 600 liters (132 gallons) of water per day, compared to the 20 liters (4.5 gallons) deemed to be
the minimum daily requirement for drinking, washing, cooking and
sanitation. Such unsustainable consumption levels have led to localized
areas of water scarcity and significantly altered freshwater ecosystems.
In the US, over 30 states are expected to face
significant water shortages within the next five years. Canada’s per capita water consumption is 65% above the world average. At this rate, water supplies (mainly ground-level sources) will not
be able to support Canada's growing needs and expanding population.
Grey water recycling helps reduce the burden on local
freshwater supply and the strain on wastewater systems.
It’s a smart, simple step in the right direction, one that begs the
question: why haven’t we thought of this sooner?
