With swimsuit weather coming up, everyone has diets on their mind. But the World Water Forum wants you to start thinking about a different kind of diet: a water diet. In fact, they want the whole world to start cutting back on its water usage. 70% of the world’s drinking-quality water is used on agriculture, and only 10% for drinking. These stats show it’s very important to start considering using re-used waste water for irrigation purposes, and saving the drinking-quality water only for what we need. You can start putting systems like this into practice in your own home with greywater systems, and even toilets that use waste water to fill the bowl. Everyone should chip in and do their part to ensure we have enough clean drinking water for many generations to come.
