Every drop counts

Every drop counts

The need to recycle and re-use wastewater has never been more critical. Water is being wasted; parts of the planet are drying out; people are dying for lack of access to safe, clean drinking water.

Consider these facts - statistics that are generally accepted by The United Nations, the World Health Organisation and Millennium Development Goals:

  • 1 billion human beings around our planet (i.e. one in every six people) currently lack access to clean drinking water
  • 2.5 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation
  • 50% of all hospital beds on Earth are occupied by people with easily preventable, water-borne diseases
  • Between 3 and 5 million people die every year from water-borne diseases… 1.8 million of these are children
    • (more than 6,000 children die every day, or one every 15 seconds, from water-borne diseases)
  • Women and girls in Africa spend a staggering 40 billion hours a year finding and carrying water back to their families
  • With humanity is sucking water out of the ground four times faster than it's being replenished by nature, 66% of people on Earth will suffer from water shortages by the year 2025
  • And while global warming is unquestionably one of the most important issues facing the planet today, most experts believe that the water crisis is even more pressing

 

Clean water equals life. Every drop counts.
