1 pair of jeans is the equivalent of 2,000 gallons of water. 1 glass of beer is the equivalent of 20 gallons of water. 1 steak is the equivalent of 1,000 gallons of water. If those statistics don’t put things into perspective for us I don’t know what will.

It makes the dire situation of potential water loss scary when it’s laid out in such plain language. And it should. It should make us all a little bit nervous, a little bit more willing to educate ourselves, something that Neutrogena Naturals ambassador Kristen Bell advocates.

When I attended the Neutrogena Naturals Event this past Monday I entered the room and three life size posters stared me in the face depicting the statistics above. I knew I wanted to learn more, and not just about our current situation, but about how we can all educate ourselves better and take preventative measures. Lucky for us the Nature Conservancy has done just that.

The Conservancy has partnered up with Neutrogena to create Neutrogena’s Natural line, a line of products minus the bad chemicals with all the stuff that keeps our skin clean. Actress Kristen Bell uses the products herself and even makes it a point to mention that just because the products don’t have the chemicals in them doesn’t mean they don’t work. In fact, she says they work better!

  1. absolutely Insane how many gallons of water a new pair of jeans wastes…I can only think of people in other countries who walk miles, just to get fresh drinking water.

  2. Quite right Kara. It puts everything in perspective, doesn’t it? I read somewhere that the average American uses anywhere from 50-150 gallons in a single day, while an average African uses only 8-10 gallons. Imagine the effort it takes just to gather those 8-10 gallons for each member of a family.

    I’m a fan of Kristen Bell, and it really thrills me to see her getting more active in conservation and preservation of resources. Hopefully more “Celebrities” do the same.
