Water scarcity affects 40% of the planet. Collectively, it’s crucial that we’re all more aware of the way in which we use – and waste – water. After all, water wastage will inevitably lead to water scarcity, which can lead on to drought. In turn, we could see water levels drop in our wonderful reservoirs, lakes, rivers and streams; fish and plant life dying; livestock, endangered species and wildlife not being able to access drinking water; and reduction of soil quality impacting agriculture.
