Did you know that around 2.6 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation globally? Have you heard that a child dies every 15 seconds of waterborne diseases? Has anyone told you how much water a sprinkler in one hour uses or how many gallons of water are needed to produce one pound of coffee?
We have compiled a list of twenty water facts that remind us of the extreme urgency for fresh drinking water in the developing countries but also reveal our water consumption behavior in the Western world.
It is true that our water consumption does not have a direct impact on the lives of the less fortunate. However, when you take a shower or drink from the tap next time, you may want to reflect on how lucky you are and that it is our responsibility to provide others with similar means. We also rely on you! Let's spread the word beyond Twestival! Let's help charity: water: http://www.charitywater.org
