Notes from the recycling bin

Did you know …

March 22 is World Water Day. In 1992, World Water Day was designated by the United Nations General Assembly to focus attention on the importance of freshwater in our daily life and to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. Our most precious element in this world is water. In highly developed countries, the average person uses between 70 to 100 gallons of clean, safe water per day for things like drinking, cooking, laundry, bathing, cleaning, flushing toilets, watering gardens. Worldwide, approximately 1 in 9 people do not have access to clean water and more than 840,000 people die from water related diseases each year. United Nations World Water Day offers a reminder of how critical freshwater is for life, as well as how limited our supplies are. The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land.
