Clean water is something that we take for granted – but many people around the world don’t have that luxury. This World Water Day, the theme is ‘Leave No One Behind’ – the goal is to make sure that everyone benefits from raising awareness of the need for clean, safe water.
In 2019, access to water should be seen as a basic human right but if you watch TV, you’ll see appeals from water charities highlighting that the ability to obtain clean water is still lacking in large parts of the world.
People without clean drinking water often resort to collecting water from dirty, unfiltered streams and rivers, forced to drink water that is contaminated with waste, risking exposure to bacteria and diseases. Hundreds of people die every day from drinking dirty water, and millions more live with illness from that same water.
One way to help meet the demand for clean water is to introduce rainwater harvesting to communities where water is in short supply. The German supplier Wisy are innovative leaders in rainwater technology, and are active in promoting this in countries such as India, Pakistan, Malaysia etc. We are proud to be the UK’s sole supplier for the Wisy range of rainwater harvesting products.
Here in the UK, rainwater harvesting can also be beneficial in conserving water supplies. To find out more about rainwater harvesting, visit our website www.rainharvesting.co.uk or call us on 01452 772000.
