Water - A Sacred Trust

M
muaznasir

Water plays an instrumental role in the foundation of many of the world’s religions. Whether it is used as part of ritual cleansing and purification or embraced as a symbol of growth and fertility, the concept of water management and conservation is integral to the religious practices of many faiths. The goal of this seminar is to rekindle our connection towards the sanctity of water, provide proactive tips that faith groups can use to increase awareness within their congregations and optimize the overall water efficiency of both our homes and institutions. The target audience will be faith communities and homes.

Water
A Sacred Trust
ONE THOUGHT



 The human brain now holds the key to our future.
  We have to recall the image of the planet from
outer space: a single entity in which air, water, and
 continents are interconnected. That is our home.

                                                                     - David Suzuki

  • 12. PRE-RINSE SPRAY NOZZLE A pre-rinse spray valve uses a blast of water to rinse off excess food waste before loading them into a dishwasher. •Reduced water costs: Less water flowing at a higher velocity can be used to achieve the same goal. •Improved efficiency: Low-flow units have a higher water velocity and more effective spray patterns. •Less stress on the dishwasher: More food is removed resulting in an efficient dishwasher cycle and increases the longevity of your dishwashing unit.

Potential laundry uses as well. Muaz Nasir | W ater – A Sacred Trust | 09/20/2 012
  • 17. WATER FOOTPRINT The interest in the water footprint is rooted in the recognition that human impacts on freshwater systems can ultimately be linked to human consumption, and that issues like water shortages and pollution can be better understood and addressed by considering production and supply chains as a whole. Water problems are often closely tied to the structure of the global economy. Many countries have significantly externalized their water footprint, importing water- intensive goods from elsewhere. This puts pressure on the water resources in the exporting regions, where too often mechanisms for wise water governance and conservation are lacking.
