EQUALITY
FOR ALL

With the right approach, research and our work, we follow our promise to all equally.

Water is complex because it is linked to almost everything in the world. But complexity should not hinder understanding: Water is a precondition for human existence and for the sustainability of the planet.

FACT'S #1

1

NEARLY 97% OF THE WORLD'S WATER IS SALTY OR OTHERWISE UNDRINKABLE

Another 2% is held in ice caps and glaciers. That leaves just one percent for all of humanity's needs - agricultural, residential, manufacturing, and community needs.

2

1 OF 10 PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO SAFE AND DRINKABLE WATER

WATER covers around more than 70% of the Earth's surface.

3

ONLY IN AFRICA 700.000 CHILDREN DIE ANNUALLY DUE TO UNSAFE DRINKING WATER

According to WHO and UNICEF, approximately 894 million people globally don’t have access to improved water sources.

Better
health

WATER-BASED EXERCISE CAN HELP PEOPLE WITH CHRONIC DISEASES.

People report enjoying water-based exercise more than exercising on land. They can also exercise longer in water than on land without increased effort or joint or muscle pain.

FACT'S #2

1

MORE THAN ONE-QUARTER OF ALL BOTTLED WATER COMES FROM A MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLY - THE SAME PLACE THAT TAP WATER COMES FROM

In australia 1 liter of bottled water is more expensive than 1 litre of petrol.

2

HUMAN USE AND MISUSE OF WATER RESOURCES HAS PASSED BEYOND SUSTAINABLE LIMITS IN MANY AREAS.

It takes 91 liters of water to produce one pint of beer.

3

IT AKES 162 GALLONS OF OIL AND 7 LITRES OF WATER TO MANUFACTURE A 1 LITRE BOTTLE.

Only 1 of 5 bottles is RECYCLED.

OUR
FOOD

A PERSON CAN LIVE ABOUT TWO MONTHS WITHOUT FOOD, BUT ONLY A WEEK WITHOUT WATER.

Behind every fruit, every meat, every drink, lies a huge amount of natural resources

FACT'S #3

1

THE PLANET NEEDS 200 MILLION LITRES OF WATER EVERY SECOND TO GROW FOOD

One kilogramme of beef requires an massive 15,415 litres of water. That is 50 times as much is needed to produce a kilogramme of vegetables.

2

IT TAKES 68 LITER OF WATER TO GROW 1 APPLE.

70% of global water consumption is accounted for by the agricultural industry, mainly for irrigation purposes. Industry represents 20% of total consumption, which is dominated by energy production and production activities. The remaining 10% is owned by households, only 1% is used as drinking water.

3

NEARLY HALF AN ACRE OF CORNFIELD EVAPORATES 15,141 LITERS OF WATER PER DAY.

This number is even greater in areas of high water scarcity and high population density.

Water
pollution.

In developing countries 70% of industrial wastes are dumped into the
usable water supply

1.8 billion people worldwide drink mud-contaminated water.

FACT'S #4

1

MORE THAN 70% OF THE EARTH'S SURFACE IS COVERED WITH WATER.

80 % of marine pollution originates on land, whether along the coast or far inland.

2

MORE THAN 30 BILLION TONNES OF URBAN SEWAGE ARE DISCHARGED INTO LAKES, RIVERS AND OCEANS EACH YEAR.

Asia has the highest number of polluted rivers in the world, mostly due to its dumping of raw sewage and the resulting bacteria.

3

THERMAL POLLUTION IS THE RISE OR FALL IN THE TEMPERATURE OF A NATURAL BODY OF WATER CAUSED BY HUMAN INFLUENCE.

Elevated water temperatures decrease oxygen levels, which can kill fish and alter food chain composition, reduce species biodiversity, and foster invasion by new thermophilic species.

Sustainable
Development.

It takes 2700 liters of water to produce one cotton T-shirt.

Therefore, it is important to consider the re-use of materials and recycling them.

FACT'S #5

1

Asia has the highest number of polluted rivers.

Plastic waste being a major water pollutant, is causing huge destruction of marine life and is believed to be responsible for deaths of more than 100,000 sea mammals, sea birds and various types of fishes.

2

7 months and 8 days

In 2016, man consumed all the resources that the planet can renew in a year in just 7 months and 8 days. “Earth Overshoot Day”, calculated every year by the Global Footprint Network, was on 8 August 2016. The date falls earlier and earlier every year; in 2000 it was on 1 October. (Global Footprint Network)

5 plastic bottles = 1 t-shirt

The material produced by recycling 5 water bottles made from PET can make one tee-shirt.

Source
of life.

Water is composed of only two elements, hydrogen and oxygen.

Water acts as a natural purifier and removes toxins from our system that we inhale through pollution and food. Drinking water helps to flush the system of these
harmful pollutants.

FACT'S #6

1

EVERY DAY THE SUN EVAPORATES TRILLION TONS OF WATER.

The existence of pure water is essential for life on Earth.

2

TWO-THIRDS OF THE WORLD’S POPULATION IS PROJECTED TO FACE WATER SCARCITY BY 2025, ACCORDING TO THE UNITED NATIONS.

There's plenty you can do to Help

3

SAVING WATER SHOULD NEVER BECOME A PUBLIC CONCERN.

Because we should care about freshwater pollution solutions.
