We know that millions around the globe lack access to clean water and 1 in 3 lack access to a clean toilet. Living in these conditions is a daily struggle for many. In this latest post, we’ll highlight the concept of World Water Day and give a few ideas for what you can do to conserve water resources on the local level.
A Day of Worldwide Recognition
Access to clean water is expected in almost all buildings throughout North America. But around the world, there are millions who lack this simple necessity. The formation of World Water Day was designed to bring us together to consider the needs of others and to examine the challenges in managing our resources more effectively.
Over time, World Water Day initiatives have made a positive impact on global resource supplies. But much more must be done, and this year’s event offers another opportunity to discuss positive action.
Your Role in the Fight
As someone who lives in North America and enjoys constant access to clean water, it might seem as if the global water crises are far removed from your reality. But there are actions you can take to safeguard resources and minimize your own overuse of water. These potential actions include:
-Installing low-flow shower heads
The installation of low-flow shower heads can help you to reduce the amount of water you use each year. The low-flow system uses several gallons fewer per shower than the average shower head, and this impact can be multiplied when all members of your family are taken into consideration.
- Educate others on the world water crisis
The crises taking place around the world rarely appear as breaking news on the leading channels, and don’t make the headlines in local newspapers. You can do your part by explaining the challenges we face to friends and family and organizing community groups to combat local water waste.
- Limit dishwasher use
Your home dishwasher uses as much as 7 gallons of water per cycle. That’s why it’s important only to use the system when all racks are full. Make sure all members of the family use the dishwasher with a higher level of efficiency.
