World Water Day 2013

Água

Today, we celebrate World Water Day. Many people in this World don’t have access to fresh water. We all have to understand that this ultimate resource is scarce. Around 782 million people do not have access to clean water and almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation.

In Madeira “The Water Island”, we have taken from granted that drinkable water was an infinite resource. In fact, rain patterns have change and are now very erratic. We can be surrounded by a big Atlantic Ocean, but desalination by reverse osmosis (membrane technology filtration) has a huge carbon footprint, simply not a solution.

The solution is just save water, this ultimate resource. Catarina and I collect water from the rain and use it in our garden and µfarm. Join the movement…
