20 Fascinating Facts About Water

Water Facts

Even though we inhabit a planet that is almost 70% water, one out of every 10 people in Earth does not have access to a clean water supply. More than 1.75 million children die each year from drinking polluted water, which is unjustifiable when global spend on bottled water could provide everyone in the world with a clean supply three times over.

These are among the extraordinary facts about water which appear in the video below, which was produced by Nature’s Water (www.natureswater.ie/uv-sterilizer.html). It is not meant to be a finger-pointing, guilt-tripping exercise in blame, but rather a thought-provoking perspective on how the world’s water is used. We can all do our little bit to use water more efficiently for the benefit of those who aren’t fortunate enough to have easy access to the resource.

Take a look at the video and think about what you could do to encourage water conservation and help those who crave the clean water that many of us take for granted.
