Whilst watching the ABC series last week ‘How We Got To Now’ I was intrigued and fascinated at how underground sewers were built and at the ballsy guy John Snow who applied chlorine to purify the water, paving the way for water disinfection.
Water purification actually dates back to ancient Greek and Sanskrit (India) writings in 2000 BC, where water treatment methods were recommended. People back than knew that heating water might purify it, and they were also educated in sand and gravel filtration, boiling, and straining.
Yet 750 million people still lack access to clean water.
And more people have a mobile phone than a toilet.
On Sunday March 22, it is World Water Day. It’s a day to make a difference for the members of the global population who suffer from water related issues.
So, how can you make a difference?
Supporting projects such as Thank You, a consumer movement that empowers you to fund life-changing projects through simple choices in your everyday life and Who Gives A Crap where 50% of profits go towards Wateraid to build toilets in the developing world, you too can make a difference.
Installing a water filter at home is another way in which you can make a small but significant difference and play your part in reducing the amount of plastic water bottles being sent to landfill.
So next time you fill up that glass of water. Be grateful. Be appreciative.
