Emotional Fitness Thoughts and Tips

The Water Crisis: Three facts:

Fact one:  780 million people do not have access to clean drinking water. That is equal to the entire populations of the United States, Canada, Australia, Italy, France, and Mexico

Fact two: .3.4 million People die each year from water related disease. This is the equal to Los Angeles’ population.

Fact three: 200 million work hours are spent every day by women collecting water.  

We need water; the haves encase theirs in a plastic bottle, while most of the world hauls it from one or another bacteria infested source.

You  want to make a difference by making the world better?  Here are three things you can do now to make a difference when it comes to the water crisis.

Tip one: Recycle plastics, glass, metals, and paper. Buy re-usable products rather than throw-aways, as it takes water to make most everything.

Tip two: Eat less meat, especially beef. A hamburger can use 630 gallons before is gets to your mouth. (Learn more about the water embedded in your food with National Geographic’s “The Hidden Water We Use” interactive.)

Tip three:  Everything takes water to make. So  buy less, shrink your water footprint.

This post was inspired by the Word Press  Daily Post Prompt “Water”

I use the Daily Prompts not just to spark my blog ideas, but to improve my critical thinking skills.

Not sure  how to use a Daily Post Prompt as a writer?  Here are the steps to get started. Then improve your thinking skills by seeing where the prompt has  taken others and how other thoughts fuel  your thoughts. Whether you write or not your thinking skills are improved by reading other people’s thoughts.
