SUMMARY OF RESEARCH

Did you know that only 1 percent of the earths water is clean enough to actually drink? And that 98 percent of the water on earth is either dirty water or salt water! In some places people have to get their own water to use and drink, and most of the time it is usually dirty gross water. They cant just go and get a glass of water from a faucet whenever they want to. There is about 1.6 milloin deaths a year from dirty or bad sanitation water. Wow that is a lot!

A human can survive for a month or more without eating food, but only a week or so without drinking water.”(http://www.waterinfo.org/resources/water-facts)

The average American household consumes about 127,400 gallons of water during a year. Wow!!!! thats a lot of water for one household in only one year.

Did you know that using bottled water is actually wasting water in all different ways?

Dr. Michael Warhurst, Friends of the Earth's senior waste campaigner, said:

"It is another product we do not need. Bottled water companies are wasting resources and exacerbating climate change. Transport is the fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions, and transporting water adds to that. We could help reduce these damaging effects if we all simply drank water straight from the tap.” (http://thewaterproject.org/bottled_water_wasteful)

Do you want to know how you can help save the fresh and clean drinking water on the earth? Well it can all start with you! Some things you can do to help save water on the earth is to take showers instead of baths, don’t leave the water running while you are brushing you teeth, only watering your lawn when it really needs to be watered, only starting your dishwasher if it is all they way full, and checking all of your faucets and hoses every once in a while to make sure that there is no leaks.
