Just Add Water and Change a Life on World Water Day, March 22

Water is a necessary resource for sustainable living, yet 748 million people lack access to clean water – the equivalent of nearly two and a half times the United States population. To address this crisis and to acknowledge water’s essential presence on the earth, the United Nations General Assembly declared March 22 as World Water Day in 1993.

This month, I was invited by  World Vision to spread awareness for people around the globe who need safe water sources by using an umbrella and beautiful, watercolor scarf to start the conversation. I love my scarf and umbrella! (Although, I have to admit, it hasn’t rained here much to use the Umbrella!) I love the colors in the Scarf! So pretty!

The blue umbrella, sporting World Vision’s logo and a call to save lives with water, serves as a practical reminder that rainwater is considered a precious resource for people that lack established water systems.From the World Vision Gift Catalog, the Royal Silk Scarf is made with luxurious silk, using Fair-Trade practices. The blend of soft colors emulates the purifying qualities of water and the vibrant life that it sustains.

It’s so important for everyone to have clean water! I know that often we take it for granted. Check out World Vision to see more on how you can help!

 

We have teamed up for a Giveaway in honor of  World Water Day. One winner will win the lovely Scarf and Umbrella. To enter, check out the website and tell us one way you can honor World Water Day. Deadline to enter is March 27th, 2015 at noon PST. One winner will randomly be selected via random.org.

Self Disclosure: I received free samples to facilitate this feature but am also glad to participate in this #WaterNow social media campaign to spread the word about clean water access.

  3. Hailey O says:

    yes, shorter showers, less laundry. 🙂

  4. Don’t let the water run when brushing your teeth.

  5. Use a rain barrel to collect water to water plants.

  6. Denise Taylor-Dennis says:

    I can pray for World Vision to raise more money for this cause.

  7. I think the rain barrel idea is definitely a great one. I’m going to start by sharing the World Water Day post to my friends.

    I think it’s important to support groups that go over and work on these water projects such as creating wells, barrels, etc. It’s so important! Also important to get the word out via social media to remind people that water is precious. It’s easy to take for granted when you have an endless supply…

  9. I am going to consciously take shorter showers.

  10. Jennifer A says:

    What a great cause!

  11. Shorter showers!

  12. We recently got a new washer that uses less water to wash or clothes and I can do larger loads which also equals less water.

  13. I am definitely guilty of taking long showers so I will be more conscientious of that and will try to limit them.

  14. Congrats Linda!
