Every time we take a dump, we’re flushing more than just poop down the drain. We’re flushing money, energy and our most valuable natural resource — clean water — down it too.

The average American uses nearly 5000 gallons of potable water  per  year just to flush fecal matter down the toilet and even more than that to push it through our sewer systems. That’s over 1.5 billion gallons of water in the U.S alone.
