Water is a very scarce commodity today because of the many issues regarding our environment. It’s because our planet is currently experiencing global warming, waste management issues, and nature issues. There are also the issues on the waste being thrown into the lake or any body of water. If these are not acknowledged and addressed properly, then we will definitely have a problem with where we would get our necessities such as food and water. These are the basic needs of man anywhere in the world.
For example, certain places in Asia are suffering from the lack of water. Not only is purified and distilled water industries increasing but, in some places, drinking their water causes diseases like amoebiasis or loose bowel movement. This is because the water carries viruses and then it was not cleaned before drinking it. The most popular form of purifying water is by boiling it then one may drink it hot or allow it to cool down. If you are unsure of the resource, then do boil it before drinking to kill some impurities.
Also, it helps to support environmental groups who want to address nature issues because water is part of their concern. They understand that being human beings who live on Earth; we should take care of the place that we live in. Let us keep it clean and cultivate our surroundings to give us clean necessities. It’s not an easy task because of course, most of us are focused on something else like our job. We take for granted our mother earth and create more waste without any method of addressing these.
Companies are also encouraged to take part in doing all these activities because usually, they are concerned. Since they occupy a very big population in terms of generating wastes, then they should have proper methods to address it. It’s also because it could include chemicals and other hazardous wastes. Since they use this to manufacture products and support their operations, then they should take responsibility for it. They are now trying to take corporate social responsibility to be able to make sure that they can contribute.
As people though, the best thing that we can do is to take part in segregation of wastes for easier disposal. That is usually the method that most countries are doing because with that, it’ll be easier to know where to put the biodegradable and non-biodegradable. It’s also a great way to make money out of junk. There are some junk yards who buy used bottles, newspapers, and even plastic for recycling. Rates of course vary depending on the weight, and it is a great incentive to promote waste management.
There are many ways for many groups and people to contribute. Though the important thing is to do something about it and be able to make sure that we commit to it. It is easier said than done because we weren’t having these problems before. Now, we are having problems with our water and we even worry about where it comes from. We can’t exactly get water from the sea because this could cause hallucinations other than the fact that it is salty.
We can however drink water from the rain as long as it hasn’t dropped on anything dirty. It is a great way to refresh and quench a thirst. Someone even once told me that soldiers go through water therapy before they go on field. They said that they do that so that when they lack water, they can drink their own urine since they will also be clean. Though, they can only do this for a short number of times.
