Today is the 20th anniversary of World Water Day. Many of us forget how lucky we are to have easy access to water for drinking, washing dishes and laundry, taking a dip into the pool, or just enjoying a long hot shower.
We must truly appreciate the gifts that nature has provided us but also be aware of how you can take action to preserve our most valuable resource. In addition, World Water Day brings the awareness that 800 million people are stilling without access to clean water.
