Join us in celebrating World Water Day
World Water Day is an annual event celebrated on March 22. The day focuses attention on the importance of freshwater and advocates for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. This day was first formally proposed in Agenda 21 of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro. In 1993, the first World Water Day was designated by the United Nations General Assembly and since, each year focuses on a different issue.
The need to respect the planet and be grateful for all that it provides should be a constant one. However, especially on this day of United Nation's designated "World Water Day", I hope that you will take a moment to realize the desperate perils threatening our planet's water supply. Hopefully realize that unless we change our behavior to conserve, protect and replenish - WE WILL PAY THE PRICE AS A SPECIES, and we only have our own shortsighted failures to blame. Much of our world's other life has already gone extinct - mostly due to our encroachments and bad behavior.
... try and leave the world for our children better than we inherited it, they should not bear our sins; we need to be better than we are and have been so far or we will bring about the extinction level event that will see the end of humanity ...
Globally, the vast majority of all the wastewater from our homes, cities, industry and agriculture flows back to nature without being treated or reused – polluting the environment, and losing valuable nutrients and other recoverable materials.
