10 cubic meters of water in 20 days

My mother was kind enough to host 3 guests from Bucharest (1 adult and 2 teenagers) in Sibiu during the theater festival. She was shocked however to discover that during the 3 weeks they’ve spent in our apartment (separate from where my parents live), they consumed 10 cubic meters of water 😳😳

If you think that 1 cubic meter means 13 baths, 10 cubic meters during 20 days looks to me like a completely irresponsible and unsustainable lifestyle. 

Especially if you think that 3 billion people currently lack basic hand-washing facilities at home… Or that the world is projected to face a freshwater deficit of 40 percent by 2030…

“We can only be motivated to change a behaviour, once we are aware that it needs changing in the first place.” 

How to make aware people of the need to change such a behavior and bad habits without being rude? 
Any tips, anyone ? 🙏🙏
