World Water Day

World Water Day

Water is a part of our daily life. Yet there is so much about this essential resource that we don’t know. Take the opportunity to learn more this World Water Day. Not only will it help your health and the international community, but also the lives of future generations.

The international observance of World Water Day is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro. This year, World Water Day falls on March 22a day of observance and action to draw attention to the plight of those without access to safe drinking water.

We have the same amount of water on Earth now that there was at the time of the planet’s creation. The water consumed today will eventually be recycled throughout the Earth’s ecosystem for use by future generations. The water we’re drinking now has been on Earth for millions of years! If you can imagine that your great-grandchildren will drink the same glass of water that you drink, you will be inspired to take better care of it.


Twenty percent of the world’s population lacks access to adequate and safe drinking water, and as our population increases so will the number of people without easily attainable water. Find out about the problems that plague our water situation, and the noble work being done to combat this growing crisis.

Does anybody know when World Water Day hits this year? I hear that this water cooler dispenser company is giving out awards for places, people and companies that are working to improve or preserve our water ways. We should all take the initiative to praise those who are working to keep the planet safe for future generations.
