One litre of cold water from the tap accounts for 0.008 kg of CO2 emissions. This may not sound like much at first, but let’s assume you leave your tap running whilst you brush your teeth for two minutes twice a day.

Each minute accounts for 6 litres of water, which adds up to 24 litres of water per day.

For the average UK household of 2.4 people, this adds up to 21,024 litres wasted per year, and an extra 168 kg of CO2 emitted every year. That’s 70 kg of CO2 per person per year.

So make sure you turn that tap off!
