Water – The Precious Commodity

Water. When readily available for personal or business use, it’s perhaps the most taken-for-granted benefit of living in the developed world.

More than a billion people today live without access to clean drinking water. If current trends continue, by 2025 two-thirds of the world’s population will be susceptible to water shortages. We’re simply using water at rates that nature cannot support.
