World Water Day is a day to celebrate the gift of water and the one day each year when we need to stand for how important water is to our lives and our future.
The United Nations began recognizing and establishing World Water Day in 1992, and each year a different theme is chosen to illuminate one critical area of how water impacts our lives. This year’s theme: Nature for Water explores how we can use nature to overcome the water challenges of the 21st century.
Here Are The Top 10 Ways You Can Stand For Water:
1. RESEARCH. Take a moment to learn more about the United Nations website about World Water Day. Most do not know the facts surrounding water issues around the world.
2. EDUCATE. Know the truth about World Water Crisis. The infographics at Water.org provides straight up facts about the water crisis.3. UNDERSTAND. The relationship of our actions and inactions and how this impacts our drinking water. Understand the real risks associated with unhealthy drinking water.
Enjoy clean, crisp, ultra-filtered water without the hassle of dealing with heavy bottles and delivery schedules. Save money, space, and time with your own Global Water bottleless water cooler system.
4. TRANSFORM. The water crisis will not be solved until we step outside of ourselves and the corrupt corporate culture that has our stolen our water rights away from us. Leadership is needed to take the bold and transformative steps to shift thinking about water. Through the wisdom of the crowd, a collective consciousness can transform our relationship with water.
5. STAND. Take a moment to learn how you can Save Water And Protect Our Water. Water conservation is one of the best ways to protect the earth’s most precious resource for our children and the next generation.
