20 Things...

20 Things in my DAILY routine that require clean water:

Showering
Hydrating Tego
Drinking
Cooking
Baking
Laundry
Brushing my teeth
Making tea
Using the restroom
Taking my makeup off
Watering the grass
Watering the flowers
Shaving
Making coffee
Cleaning
Filling pools in the summer
Boating
Wake boarding
Filling baby bottles
Washing cars

What would you do if you didn't have water?
These daily routines are so simple. Yet, we take them for granted. Can you imagine a life without water? Or having to work for HOURS to supply your own water? 


THE FACTS:
  • Women around the world spend over 200 million hours collecting water for their families.
  • Every 20seconds a child dies from a water-related illness.
  • The majority of illness is caused by fecal matter
  • 90% of the deaths due to diarrheal diseases are children under 5 years old, mostly in developing countries.
  • 3 things most of the world can't do; shower, get clean water from the tap, and flush away yesterday's dinner.

  2. Such an informative and important post. We really need to be more grateful for what we have and do more for others who don't have the same. thanks for sharing!

    Oh and it might be confusing but my GFC is acting odd on this computer and I followed you through it using my twitter. Pretty cool you can do that!
