Looking out at the water, it looks clean and that we have enough of it. But in reality we don't. We don't have enough water and we don't know how to treat the water that we do have.
By 2025, it is said that 50% of the world's population will be in water stressed areas. We need to learn how to conserve our water
SAVE WATER TODAY
This is a great way to conserve water because of all the water it saves.
The Water-less Toilet
I am traveling around the world to inform people on water conservation and the nee to sustain this resource. First I went to an office building to show adults the issues and solutions of water conservation.
This is the trash that is currently in our oceans. There is currently 150 million metric tons of plastic in the water right now.
I talked to them about the problems first, showing them the real issues and the water that is at stake. There are may issues of conserving water. A tap of water can drip 300 liters per years, a cup of coffee uses 130 liters, a t-shirt uses 2500 liters, and a pair of jeans uses 10,000 liters of water. We are using too much water.
These are the animals that are getting hurt, and even more will get hurt if we keep this up.
I showed them the composting toilet which saves so much water. A composting toilet will save more than 8,000 liters per year for every person. It is said that "in 25, 50, or 100 years, we probably won't have the luxury of using clean water to wash away waste," so this is a great way to save water before we run out of clean water completely.
This is a compostable water bottle that will help us cut down on plastic. Someday our oceans will looks like this again.
Compostable Water Bottles
Then I traveled to a high school to teach teenagers about water conservation and treatment. They are our future generation that will be changing things and the way that we treat our water. It is important that they knew the truth about what is really happening.
I taught them about the animals that are getting hurt and dying from the plastics in our oceans. I showed them that 100,000 marine animals die a year from plastic, and 1 million sea birds die. They began to see the real issue that is arising here.
I taught them about compostable water bottles. Compostable water bottles will cut down on plastic and will most likely lower the amount of plastic thrown into oceans because it's one less thing made out of plastic. It's just another step in the right direction, and our future generation seemed to think it's a great idea and they all wanted to try them right away.
