Blog Action Day 2010....


Blog Action Day 2010: Water from Blog Action Day on Vimeo.






This year s topic is WATER...CLEAN WATER which is a human right...We all have the right to be safe when we drink a glass of water...
In Africa women walk over 40 billion hours each year carrying cisterns weighing up to 18 kilograms to gather water, which is usually still not safe to drink...Also children under 5 die anually because of the unsafe water and poor living conditions...
The disregard for water resources in industrialized countries impacts more than humans – it causes environmental devastation.
Every day, 2 million tons of human waste are disposed of in water sources. This not only negatively impacts the environment but also harms the health of surrounding communities...
The oceans ,seas are polluted and even those little living creatures are harmed...Along them also the humans are infected...
But the good news is that WE CAN DO SOMETHIN'!!!There are many organizations working on solutions regarding the water crisis...
Organizations like Water.org and charity: water are leading the charge in bringing fresh water to communities in the developing world...
We can all take small steps to help keep pollution out of our rivers and streams, like correctly disposing of household wastes...
Even when going to a picnic near a lake or a source of water our duty is to remove all the garbage we do and not letting it there,especially in the water...
A first step in cleaning water starts with our own hygiene so every time you go out to relax take some time and think about your life and the others and keep it all clean and safe...DO NOT POLLUTE ANYMORE!
