It usually takes 2,700 litres of water to make one cotton t-shirt, based on the quantity of water required to grow enough cotton to manufacture the t-shirt. The quantity of water is considered enough for a person to drink for about 900 days. This is referred to as ‘virtual water’, meaning water used to create goods and services.
