Water is of major importance to all living things
Water is a precious resource of life and forms the base of survival. It occupies maximum portion of the earth, out of which 97% is occupied by the salt water, 2% is trapped under glaciers and 1% is drinking water
In some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water. Up to 60% of the human body is water, the brain is composed of 70% water, and the lungs are nearly 90% water. Lean muscle tissue contains about 75% water by weight, as is the brain; body fat contains 10% water and bone has 22% water. About 83% of our blood is water, which helps digest our food, transport waste, and control body temperature. Each day humans must replace 2.4 litres of water, some through drinking and the rest taken by the body from the foods eaten
Much of a problem is Plastic
Plastic takes around 400 years to degrade and kill many fish and sea animals. Though the body of the dead animal decomposes faster, the plastic will remain and pose a threat to other sea animals. The water gets contaminated with plastics due to dumping it straight into the water or if it is thrown on the road it gets washed away by the rain, eventually landing into the freshwater bodies.
Africa report that more than one billion people do not have enough clean water to provide for their basic human needs.
More than 2,500 children are dying each day.
Unsafe drinking water can carry diseases such as malaria, trypanosomiasis, intestinal worm infections, dengue, and schistosomiasis - as well as bacteria that can lead to deadly diarrheal infections.
Don't waste and keep it clean.
