World Water Day 2020 is focussing on Water and Climate Change
This 22nd March will focus on water and climate change, and how the two are linked. World Water Day 2020 hopes to share information and raise awareness about how using water more efficiently will reduce greenhouse gases and that by adapting to the water effects of climate change we can help protect health and save lives.
Water can help fight climate change.

Water can help play a vital role in reducing the effects of climate change. Firstly, wetlands soak up carbon dioxide from the air, acting as an important carbon sink, plus the worlds largest carbon sinks are currently earth’s oceans. Water therefore plays a big role in soaking up the carbon emissions produced by humans. Water is one of our most precious resources and so it is important to make sure to use it responsibly and try to avoid wasting it.
Water-to-Go and World Water Day
World Water Day, held on 22 March every year since 1993, started and continues with the aim to celebrate water and raise awareness of the 2.2 billion people worldwide living without access to safe water. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis. A core focus is to support the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.
One of the core elements of our mission at Water-to-Go is to protect our customer’s health by providing clean safe drinking water anywhere in the world. Our unique 3-in-1 filtration technology is able to remove up to 99.9999% of all harmful contaminents from any non-salt water source in the world. This means no matter where you are in the world, you’ll have access to clean safe drinking water.
