3 reasons why preservation of water is important
Preservation water is important
Have you ever wondered how life would be without water? Well, it’s hard to imagine because without water, life as we know it wouldn’t exist at all. Every living thing, from cyanobacteria to plants, animals, and humans need water to survive. Some organisms need more water than others but at the end of the day, water, in all its forms, is essential to all of us.
Since there are a lot of important days celebrated on September such as Ozone Preservation Day on the 16th, World Maritime Day on the 24th, and World Rivers Day on the 27th, we decided to raise awareness about the importance of preserving water to demonstrate how this clear substance is essential to every ecosystem on Earth. Take a look at these top 3 reasons why we should all contribute to the preservation of water:
Water Protects Our Ecosystem and Wildlife
Humans are not the only ones on Earth that need water to stay hydrated and healthy! As we mentioned above, water is essential for every ecosystem on Earth. Every species on this planet needs water to live and survive. In fact, according to insights from the paper Water to Survive, natural ecosystems play a vital role in securing water resources by regulating the water flow, ensuring water quality, and reducing the impact of natural disasters.
Without Water, We Wouldn’t Have Food
Water is not only used for drinking but also for growing crops and manufacturing energy and transportation. The fruits you eat in the morning or the vegetables you enjoy at lunch require water to grow, otherwise, they will suffer from drought and become useless plants. In other words, water equals life, and without it, the world’s population will starve to death.
Water Supply Is Already Limited
You may think that there is a lot of water out there because oceans are big, but truth is that out of the 70% of the water that is available, only 0.03% is made up of freshwater! There is a percentage that is locked in ice caps, glaciers, in the atmosphere, and even under the earth’s surface while there is another percentage that is just too polluted for consumption. Some countries don’t even have access to clean water, so the people that live there have to jeopardize their health every day to get a bit of this precious resource even if it’s not clean enough.
By effectively reducing water consumption you can make a huge contribution to the planet to ensure not only clean water for yourself for a long time, but also for all living organisms on earth! At Aquasana, we strongly care for the environment and that’s the main reason why we work hard to offer water filters that allow individuals to consume clean freshwater in communities where there is a lack of it.
There are different types of water filters we have available that you can use at home to transform ordinary tap water into clean, extraordinary water:
The over-the-counter filter: a great option for those who move frequently but still want to have unlimited access to good tasting water!
The under-the-counter filter: designed to be installed under the counter of your kitchen. This is the best option for those who don’t have enough space to accommodate a water filter system in the kitchen! You can simply install it under your sink and enjoy clean water at all times.
