Citations? Here're mine:

USA uses about 1500 m3/capita/year, which is similar to New Zealand (1200 m3/capita/year) and Canada (1400 m3/capita/year). Compare with California alone, we're at 178 gallons/capita/day which is 245 m3/capita/year. That's lower than most countries.

Wouldn't help much. They bottle about 500 million gallons of water a year. California residents use about 1 trillion gallons a year (about 10% of California's yearly water usage). To put that into perspective: almond farms use about 1.2 trillion gallons a year; alfalfa farms use about 1.5 trillion gallons a year.

Unlocked Moto G or Moto E are fairly inexpensive and they're more than adequate for what they do. If I were to go off contract, that's what I would do. I currently have an HTC One M8 on contract so I can't unlock it now, but it's not an issue for me since I still have a Nexus 4 for international travel and as a general backup phone.
