This concern about water and the provision of tools to help calculate consumption and efficiency are timely in the light of droughts being experienced in certain parts of the world today, like Southeast Asia, where a large percentage of land is agricultural and needs plenty of water. Global warming aside, water is crucial for keeping planting crops sustainable.

Hi Joel, if you're around today at World Water Week, come and talk to us. We're the Akvo team (www.akvo.org) - exploring how the water sector can apply open source principles to speed up the pace of water and sanitation development. Would love to explain more. Cheers, Mark

Great post!

If the economics don't work, recycling efforts won't either.
As our little contribution to make this economics of recycling more appealing, http://LivePaths.com blogs about people and companies that make money selling recycled or reused items, provide green services or help us reduce our dependency on non renewable resources.
