Most of us consider water as a mainstay of daily life that's readily available. Everyday tasks like showering, doing the laundry, washing dishes, and brushing our teeth would not be possible without water. Although many of us take having enough water for granted, water is actually a limited resource that is not available to many people in less fortunate places.
Only one percent of the earth's water supply is available for human use. The remaining water is salt water that makes up our oceans or frozen ice caps in remote arctic areas of the world. Without water, many people and important industries like farming, mining, and fishing would suffer. Clean water is not as accessible as most people think, so water conservation really does matter.
