Water for All: Ways Businesses Can Reduce Their Water Usage

By Chris Myer  |  March 22 , 2019

The fact that clean water will readily flow from the faucet is a given in the developed world. In developing countries, though, finding potable water is often a daily struggle.

According to the African Wildlife Foundation, “If the entire global population had the water habits of the average European or North American, we would need about three and a half Earths to sustain us.”

Wastewater – Rethinking How We View Our Water Resources

By: Briana Smith  |  March 22, 2017

It’s World Water Day – a day to reflect on our own water use while recognizing the world’s water crisis.

As Americans, we often take our abundance of clean water for granted. With the exception of the Flint, Michigan water crisis and regional droughts, most people in the United States give no further thought to their water source past the tap. In contrast, according to UN-Water, “Today, 1.8 billion people use a source of drinking water contaminated with feces, putting them at risk of contracting cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio.”1
