Society should begin to become aware of it. In the last years people are realizing about the trouble of climate change or the massive use of plastics in our lives. I think that we must do the same with water. Do you know how many water liters we have to use to make a pair of jeans that you saw at store? According to the Politecnic University of Madrid, between 2,130 and 3,078 liters. It is awesome! So yesterday I went to my closet and I calculated “how many liters I had in my wardrobe”. I would rather you do not know it.
“700 million of people all over the world could take the decision to run away from their homes because of lack of water in 2030” La Vanguardia, a Spanish newspaper.
However, human stupidity is such that you do not know whether to cry or to cry. Those people who didn’t understand mathematics at school should pay attention to the next trouble. If wastewater of the human activity is throwing down rivers and seas, polluting all plants and animals. Who is going to eat these vegetables and fish? Easy, don't you think so?
Let’s keep killing ourselves, let’s keep being focused only on the last Iphone or on the pair of brand jeans that we want to wear on Saturday, instead of being aware of the serious problem of water.
The issue of water is everybody’s problem and it will only worsen unless something is done about the problem now. In a few years, millions of people will be forced to flee their homes not only because of the bombs but also because of the lack of water. And you still don’t see anything strange, do you?
