H2O in 2010

Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking a global discussion and driving collective action. This year's topic is water.

I'll stick to experts today:


"Today’s water crisis is not an issue of scarcity, but of access. More people in the world own cell phones than have access to a toilet. And as cities and slums grow at increasing rates, the situation worsens. Every day, lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills thousands, leaving others with reduced quality of life."

The UN has declared access to water a basic human right...

The Natural Resources Defense Council has things that you can do, wherever you live

And, in a list that will shock you, reports how many gallons of water it takes to make many of the items we take for granted.

Learn for yourself, and share what you know!
