    Dear Sustainability Steering Committee,
    for the past few years, the sustainability efforts at Bryn Mawr College have been focused on reducing the college's carbon footprint. There has been very little conversation/education about reducing the water footprint of our community. As a community member concerned with the increasing shortage of fresh water for many people in the world, I would like to propose that this year some efforts are dedicated to educating community members about the water footprint. For example, I am sure that most people are unaware of the fact that it takes 925 litres of water to produce a kilogram of crips or that one kilogram of beef consumes about 16, 000 litres of water. Several organizations have released informative posters about the issue and it would be nice to compile a water footprint themed exhibition at Canaday, for example.
