World Water Day: Every Drop Matters

Celebrate World Water Day on March 22nd! This UN-recognized day raises awareness about the global water crisis and inspires action. Learn how to conserve water and support clean water access efforts. Plus,  discover how Distillata, your local Cleveland bottled water delivery service with reusable bottles, can help you make a difference every drop of the way.

We are all about providing Cleveland with the purest, most refreshing water. But clean water is a precious resource, and access to it isn’t a guarantee for everyone around the world. That’s why World Water Day, celebrated annually on March 22nd, is such an important event.

What is World Water Day?

The United Nations recognizes World Water Day as a day to raise awareness about the global water crisis and advocate for sustainable water use. Each year, a different theme highlights a specific aspect of the water challenge. The theme for 2024, for example, is Water for Peace. The un.org website explains this choice, “When water is scarce or polluted, or when people have unequal or no access, tensions can rise between communities and countries.”

Why is World Water Day Important?

Millions of people around the world struggle to find clean, safe drinking water. Water scarcity is a threat. Population growth, pollution, and climate change fuel this problem. World Water Day shines a light on the critical issue. The goal is to inspire action to guarantee everyone access to this essential resource.

Closer to Home: Lake Erie

Clevelanders are lucky to have beautiful Lake Erie as a source of freshwater. However, the health of the Great Lakes is constantly under threat from pollution and invasive species. Protecting these vital freshwater resources is crucial for all who rely on it.

How Does World Water Day Affect You?

The Great Lakes account for about one-fifth of the world’s surface fresh water supply, according to the Great Lakes Commission. We have an obligation to protect the water source in our backyard. We are fortunate to have access to clean water; World Water Day is a reminder that we all have a role to play in conservation. Here are a few ways you can get involved:

  • Spread the word about World Water Day. Use the United Nations resources to take part.
  • Conserve water at home: Take shorter showers, fix leaky faucets, and water your lawn less frequently. Every drop counts.
  • Avoid using fertilizers and pesticides that can contaminate water sources.
  • Choose reusable 5-gallon water bottles over single use options.
  • Participate in a beach cleanup hosted by Adopt-a-Beach.
  • Spread awareness: Talk to your friends and family about the importance of water conservation.
