World Water Day
March 22nd, 2017
Water is so precious. For millions of people in the world it is very difficult to access. Clean water is even more difficult to find. Today we celebrate all of the work that is being done in the world to help people of those communities access clean water.
It is not uncommon for people, especially women living in remote areas, to walk many kilometers to carry heavy pails of water home for cooking and cleaning. That water will more than likely be contaminated, so that is why we are helping people access technologies such as the Biosand Water Filter.
Needless to say, water for bathing is very limited. So, for you to experience what millions of people go through on a daily basis, today, I would like to challenge everyone to have a shower with just one litre of water. Yes, that’s one litre of water! It can be done. (It does help to have short hair).
Believe me, showering in one litre of water can give all of us a greater appreciation for the water we use in our daily lives.
Wishing you a wonderful World Water Day! Remember to be thankful for every drop.
