If you’re reading this you are probably blessed to be living in a country or city where there is no question of whether or not you will have clean water to drink. We often take water for granted, it pretty reliably comes out our taps when we turn them on and is there for us nearly every time we need a drink, a bath or to do the washing up. It is easy to forget that there are places where humans, animals and plants struggle because their water is unclean or the natural water supplies have been drained or diverted away.
Today we remember that even though those places and those struggles seem far from us, they are closer to us than we realize. Every step we can take to conserve water and reduce water pollution is a gift to ourselves and the world around us.
