World Water Day 2017 : "Why Waste Water?"

Today is World Water Day. It was back in 1993 that the United Nations(UN) selected this day, March 22, as a time to raise awareness about  the importance of fresh clean drinking water. The theme of 2017's awareness campaign is fittingly: "Why waste water?" Safe and clean drinking water is a vital resource, yet in some areas of plenty, waste is widespread.

In contrast, 663 million other people across the globe live without access to safe water close to their homes. Many have to travel long distances or wait in long lines for long hours to get water. Sadly, another 1.8 billion people everyday use a source of drinking water that is contaminated by feces, thus raising risks of associated illnesses of cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio.

Yet, as too many people live in a crisis of limited access to fresh clean water, the important resource is wasted in a number of other jurisdictions through some simple acts like - continuously running the faucet, while brushing teeth and washing dishes. If the clean resource needed for sustaining life is to be accessed by all people, as part of the United Nations(UN) Sustainable Development Goals by the year 2030, then each and every person of planet Earth must make a larger commitment not to waste water via reduce usage and recycling.

The people of planet Earth have the power to change the water crisis and this could be accomplished, as observed by Guy Ryder, chair of UN-Water, who has admonished individuals to:"Do what you can, do it with others, and do it with passion."
