What did you do this morning? How did you just start your day? After rolling out of bed you might have headed to the bathroom where you washed your face, brushed your teeth, used the toilet, and took a shower. You then probably got dressed and made your way to the kitchen where you ate a healthy yogurt with granola and fruit with a glass of water. Your day has barely started and almost every step of your morning has been affected by your access to clean water. Most of us don’t stop to think about how important water is in every aspect of our lives. Clean water was essential when you brushed your teeth, washed your face, used the toilet, and took a shower. Clean water helped you clean the clothes you put on this morning. Clean water hydrated the cow that helped make your yogurt, just as it grew the strawberries and granola you put in it. Clean water even cleaned the dishes you ate your breakfast on. According to the EPA, the average american family uses 300 gallons of water per day. 300 gallons, you probably used without thinking twice.
