Peeing in the shower is good for the
planet. Urine is sterile and nontoxic,
so peeing while you wash yourself
actually saves you from wasting the
gallons of water it takes to flush the
toilet and reduces toilet paper usage. Source
“I was born in Venezuela. I moved here two years ago. I want to be President of Venezuela to change things and make better the world. Did you know that sometimes in Venezuela people shoot each other on purpose? I will change that. Also there will be rules against pushing people or thinking bad thoughts about people. I will make a rule so that there will not be too much cutting or killing of trees. And there will be a rule against killing too many animals because animals eat insects, and we can’t have too many insects. I will also make sure that we don’t waste water or food. Or if there is food left over, we have to be sure to put it in the trash. I can’t be president now because I’m only eight. But I did skip first grade.”
Imagine if you had to walk two miles to get drinking water for your family every day. That’s what many of these children in Zambia have to do three times a day. They have dreams of going to school.
EVERY CHILD DESERVES CLEAN, SAFE DRINKING WATER. THINK ABOUT THEM WHENEVER YOU WASTE WATER!
More children die from diseases caused by unsafe water than HIV/AIDS and malaria combined. It’s tragic that 1,600 children die every day (READ IT AGAIN, 1600 CHILDREN DIE EVERY DAY) from diarrhea because they lack something as simple as clean water.
Scarce, dirty water also locks people into poverty. Clean water not only gives life, it makes it possible for kids to attend school, for families to provide adequate nutrition, and for communities to prosper.
Because animals are so densely packed on today’s industrial farms, they produce more manure than can be absorbed by the land as fertilizer. The runoff from these facilities often leaks into nearby rivers and streams.
