Provides simple tips for water conservation--both the water readers see and use, as well as "virtual water," the water they cannot see but is embedded in the things they consume.

McMillan Palgrave

With hundreds of entertaining facts, Thomas Kostigen gives simple tips for water saving, both the water you see and use and "virtual water," the water you cannot see but is embedded in the things you consume. For example, it takes 27 gallons of water to grow a banana but only 19 gallons of water to grow an apple—thus choosing to eat an apple can save 8 gallons of water. The Green Blue Book includes an extensive guide so you can make smarter choices and help reduce the demand for water-intensive foods and products. With breakthrough research, humor, and a hopeful message, The Green Blue Book will show how, drop by drop, one’s water savings can add up.

This book is primarily about how much water is required to produce various foods and other products we buy. There is very little on how we can reduce our water use around home.
