World Water Day is just around the corner

Posted March 17, 2017 in Articles

What is World Water Day? On March 22, people all over the world will be working to educate about the importance of clean water and taking action against the global water crisis.

There are more than 663 million people living without a safe water supply close to home, spending countless hours queuing or trekking to distant sources and coping with the health impacts of  living day-to- day with contaminated water sources.

The below are some tips to prevent wasting water from the World Water Day website:

1. Turn off the tap while you’re brushing your teeth or doing dishes or scrubbing vegetables. Otherwise you’re just making wastewater without even using it- conserve our local resources!

2. Put rubbish, oils, chemicals, and food in the bin, not down the drain. The dirtier your wastewater, the more energy and money it costs to treat it.

3. Collect used water from your kitchen sink or bathtub and use it on plants and gardens, and to wash your bike or car.

Renewable Water Resources supports all efforts to protect one of our most precious resources- clean water. That is why we are proud to take part in honoring World Water Day. Want to learn more about how you can protect our local waterways? Visit befreshwaterfriendly.org and www.ariverremedy.org.
