Meet My Blue Earth
What if it took you less than a minute to do something that could significantly increase the world’s supply of clean, fresh water? Would you? 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water but less than 1% is actually available for treatment and use. Water is a renewable resource but we are using it up faster than nature can replenish it. Increases in human population, basic needs like food and clothing (see virtual water footprint), deforestation, global warming, and wastefulness all pose a significant threat to our ability to supply accessible clean water to human beings across the planet.
