Go With the Flow

Word from our sources at HIFF (the Hawaii International Film Festival) is that we must all go see FLOW -- a new documentary about the importance of protecting our global water supply.


I know growing up with plentiful pure water I often take for granted the fact that many people in many places on Earth do not share such luxury.  In trying to keep up with innovations in our efforts to lead and promote sustainable living, it's easy to forget about one of the main requirements for life:  Water!  Clean, fresh, wonderful life. 

Just watching the trailer for FLOW reminds me that we can all do more to raise water awareness, to help protect and preserve this valuable resource in our daily lives, and to promote and provide water to those in need.

A great way to do that now, is to DONATE to organizations like watercharity.org, or charitywater.org, that actively build wells and bring water to global villages in developing nations around the world.  It's amazing but just $20 can go a long way.

And of course, conserve personally and think outside the bottle to help spread the word. If you want to learn more, Flowthefilm's take action page is a great resource with links to mucho info.

Always merry and bright,
jordan

Thanks Jordan for this riveting post. Really is frightening to think where our future generations will be without the most precious resource, water. Hope it's ok for me to share on my blog, with credit to superforest of course!

Wow Jordan, It's an amazing coincidence you post about the water shortage crisis because it just so happens I'm writing a major term paper about it. Crazy how the universe works huh?

One Love,

Carla

Thanks for the shot out you guys. We at Water Charity really appreciate the attention that this issue has been receiving lately. 1.1 billion people don't have access to clean water...

Carla, when you're done with your term paper, perhaps you would like to post it on our website? You can always contact us through our website. Or try our MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/watercharity
