Today is World Water Day! Check out this video by Surfrider Foundation about our broken water cycle.
World Water Day was founded in 1993 by the United Nations as a global observance that highlights the need for the care and management of the world’s water resources. Millions — mostly women and children — walk an average of 6K per day to collect water. This year’s theme — “Urban Water Usage” — highlights the ongoing challenges we face as urban populations continue to grow.
