Did you know that it takes 140 liters of water to produce a standard cup of coffee – without milk? This is virtual water footprint includes the H20 used to irrigate and process the coffee beans and package, ship and distribute the coffee to our supermarkets. Unveiled in mid 2011, Waving Wall is a visual representation of the vast journey water takes, as well as the amount of water used in the production of certain products, and the average water usage of an individual. The wall features many displays that show the amount of water it takes to produce individual products (like coffee) as well as information regarding water consumption.
