I don’t know about you, but I take clean water for granted — extra long showers, brushing my teeth, watering the lawn and flowers, drinking a nice big glass with ice. I even waste it doing things like hosing down my dirty driveway. And every time I do, I can’t help thinking that there are literally billions of people who have never seen as much clean water in their lifetime as I waste every year.
For less than you probably spend on cable TV in a month, you could provide clean water to a family in east Africa for 20 years. Seriously. How could you not?
