Lack of clean water is the major problem with water not just in developing countries but also in "1st world" countries, and this is due to the fact that humans have not taken care of the resources at hand. Water is a prime example of this water ways and water sheds throughout the world have been contaminated with different debris and pollutants from agri run off and clothing manufacturing, just to name a few. Trash and poor water management also affect not just the immediate people but people on the other side of the world. Our everyday actions affect everyone on earth and the water here, let’s make better choices to make our everyday lives better and those in the next generations...
