    Thank you for taking the time to share this, and for recognizing World Water Day.

    As a water district engineer in Colorado, USA, this article really affected me – I have begun to lose heart here, for regardless of how much evidence is presented to the public, it seems to fall on deaf ears. It is a serious problem, yet it is still taken for granted, mainly because people do not understand the full cycle of their consumption, whether that be direct water use or what they purchase. It seems like very few people know about how the agriculture, textile, and cosmetics industries use (and waste and sometimes pollute) a plethora of water. It is wonderful to read that people are becoming more aware of this, and hopefully adjusting as best as they can afford to. Maybe this will cause those industries to adjust, as well.

    I am very grateful to you for posting about this – you are someone people might listen to. Just reading this gave me a bit of hope, which is helpful to someone losing heart, so thank you for that, as well.

      Hi Ariel! It’s a cause/day very important to me and I’ve seen the impacts first hand. Thank you for sharing about your experience and I hope to continue educating folks about how finite our resources are — and what we can do about it.

    I love how you took the time to share this with everyone. I’m impressed, honestly! If only people have the same heart and mindset as you, we can surely save lots of water. Thank you for sharing this, what a great read!
