Water in that!

Mpophomeni Enviro-club kids were super surprised to find out how much water is “really in” everything that we use and eat! They were tasked to find out how much water goes into making a plastic bottle, producing one litre of milk, making a book, and many other things… “I never realised how much it really takes! It was hard to find out the true numbers, and when we did we were shocked!” We challenge others to do the same thing and see what figures they come up with!
