Did you know…
Yesterday was World Water Day. World Water Day has been celebrated since 1993 when it was declared by the United Nations. The theme for World Water Day this year was water and food security.
From the World Water Day website, “There are 7 billion people to feed on the planet today and another 2 billion are expected to join by 2050. Statistics say that each of us drinks from 2 to 4 litres of water every day, however most of the water we ‘drink’ is embedded in the food we eat: producing 1 kilo of beef for example consumes 15,000 litres of water while 1 kilo of wheat ’drinks up’ 1,500 litres.”
WOW! That is some interesting and cool science information. Want to know more about World Water Day?
