Win A SPECIAL WATER FILTER!
Even though our planet is 70% water, only 2.5% of the Earth’s water is freshwater. Of this 2.5% two thirds is frozen as snow and ice (and it better stay that way) and more than one third is found as groundwater. That leaves us with 0.3% fresh water available in rivers and lakes.
1.2 billion people lack access to water, according to recent estimates from the International Water Management Institute. By 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population may be facing water shortages, according to the World Wildlife Federation (WWF).
The situation is set to grow more urgent as our population is to exceed 10 billion by 2050. Approximately 70% of the water withdrawn worldwide is consumed and nonrecoverable.
