Water Day

World Water Day is a fairly new global observance. It was proposed in 1992 at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The holiday was adopted in 1993. On this day the public is encouraged to turn off their tap and not use them for the entire day in an effort to conserve water and appreciate this valuable natural resource.
As awareness for this day grows so too does the awareness of the general public about the safety and availability of clean water around the world. 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered by water and yet so many countries are unable to provide citizens with clean, safe drinking water.

Now let’s get involved in these great activities:

 

  • A Water Schedule: Keep track of how much you use each day. Challenge yourself and your family to use less by taking shorter showers, shutting water off when you brush.
  • A Conservation Checklist: Each time you use water:
  • Make a Reuse List: Think of ways you can reuse water such as bath water to water gardens or plants (they don’t mind a little soap) pledge to adopt some of them.
  • Be a Water Detective: Check leaks around your house and fix them asap
  • Start a Garden or Terrarium or Greenhouse (below): Learn about how important water is for life
