When we hear the word community, we don’t always think of everything that makes one function. We know people, places, and leadership are essential, but we often forget other important resources which make a community function and survive. Freshwater and freshwater resources are vital to the functioning and success of a community. All over the world, people are celebrating World Water Day, an annual event held on March 22nd to raise awareness and advocacy for the importance of freshwater sustainability. Threats to freshwater and freshwater resources, as well as their ecosystems, can also pose a threat to communities. Drinking water sources and drinking water quality are annual themes, but this year the UN’s focus is on water cooperation.

According to the UN, the fulfillment of basic human needs, our environment, socio-economic development and poverty reduction are all heavily dependent on water. Even more so, every action involving water management requires effective cooperation between multiple actors whether at the local or international scale. Water cooperation is essential in providing water resources to all people in all countries. Unfortunately, 783 million people still do not have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. A startling 6 to 8 million people die annually from the consequences of disasters and water-related diseases. And as demand for water increases due to population growth and water shortages, now is the time to see what you can do for your community.

Responsible and eco-friendly decisions are the best ways consumers and residents can support their community and water supplies. We all have a stake in the water we drink, from residents and businesses, to officials and water treatment companies. This year, make the responsible choice for safe drinking water and eco-friendly products with one phone call – to us! Our drinking water systems are eco-friendly and reduce water waste by up to 90% less than traditional reverse osmosis systems. We can provide your household with unlimited water right from the tap. You can feel good about wasting less water during the filtration process while still providing your household with safe, pure drinking water. In the grand scheme of things, the United States certainly has some of the best drinking water in the world. However, even our tap water can contain harmful contaminants affecting our health. Here in Irvine, California and surrounding areas, we do not put effective management of freshwater resources at the top of our to-do list. But when you choose a water filter from our selection, you can feel good about doing your part to provide safe drinking water as well as choosing an eco-friendly system which will keep water where we need it – in our community.
