Water-to-Go is joining many other organisations and people around the world that is marking World Water Day in 2021. World Water Day, held on 22 March every year since 1993, focuses on the importance of freshwater. This year, World Water Day will be celebrated in an online event. World Water Day celebrates water and raises awareness of the global water crisis, and a core focus of the observance is to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.
World Water Day celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water. More importantly, it is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis. World Water Day is one of the few poignant international days marked by the United Nations, which seeks to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity.
This year, the United Nations is asking the question, what value do we put on water?
“Water means different things to different people. This conversation is about what water means to you. By recording – and celebrating – all the different ways water benefits our lives, we can value water properly and safeguard it effectively for everyone.
World Water Day, 22 March 2021, is about what water means to people, its true value and how we can better protect this vital resource.
How is water important to your home and family life, your livelihood, your cultural practices, your wellbeing, your local environment?
In households, schools and workplaces, water can mean health, hygiene, dignity and productivity. In cultural, religious and spiritual places, water can mean a connection with creation, community and oneself. In natural spaces, water can mean peace, harmony and preservation. Today, water is under extreme threat from a growing population, increasing demands of agriculture and industry, and the worsening impacts of climate change.”
Water is life
Water covers about 71% of the earth’s surface. However, just 3% of the earth’s water is fresh. Whilst it is all around us, the lack of access or usability of water can have impacts on our daily lives, health, industry and environment. We are only too aware of the people around the world who do not have access to safe, drinking water or sanitation; which we are all collectively trying to raise awareness of and change. This basic and fundamental right to safe water doesn’t exist for many people in under-developed countries which has a detrimental effect on their health and livelihood
Safe water is a precious resource that we take for granted, especially in the Western World. We want to join the United Nations in highlighting how important water is to us; with particular reference to drinking water and the effect that safe hydration has on our bodies.
We have made it our mission at Water-to-Go, to ensure that anyone can have access to clean, safe drinking water from any non-saltwater source in the world. Thanks to the 3-in-1 technology in our filters, anyone can fill up our bottles from a tap or river; and instantly drink filtered water to keep them safely hydrated. Not only does this protect your health wherever you are; it provides a sustainable alternative to single-use plastic bottles and consequently, helps to protect the planet.

The Health Benefits of Hydration
Water makes up around 70% of us. It helps the body function, maintaining physical and mental health. Drinking water and staying hydrated is a vital component of any good health and fitness plan. Here’s why hydration (drinking water) is good for your health:
– Hydration keeps you active
Water is necessary for the body. It is the one thing that can keep you going for an extended period without feeling tired. According to experts, drinking water at regular intervals can help improve alertness and helps keep the body active. Taking in water periodically forces the body to recalibrate the electrolytic balance of fluids in the body for optimum use.
– Hydration helps in detoxification
Our body is a machine that works by continuously breaking down complex chemical compounds into simpler forms and converting them to energy. The entire process of assimilation of nutrients consumed by the body produces a number of toxins and waste products. These accumulate in the body and are then excreted out in a number of ways. As you sip a glass of water, you are giving your system the additional buffer to reduce the effect of toxins, process them and then flush these waste products away.
– Hydration slows aging
The self-regulatory mechanism of our bodies performs much more efficiently when all the components it needs are there for it to use. Drinking plenty of water is good for the skin, and healthy skin is a sign of looking younger.
Since water helps in removing toxins from the system, problems like acne and excessive oil accumulation in the skin pores, are much more easily dealt with by a better hydrated body.
– Hydration helps in regulating body temperature
Thermoregulation is the process of keeping the body within an optimal temperature range, so that it is neither too hot nor too cold. The most obvious example is sweating, where water is pumped through the skin and then the body’s heat energy helps evaporate the sweat. This has a cooling effect that lowers body temperature.
Water is an essential component for the body’s methods of thermoregulation.
– Hydration helps improve digestion
Feeding the body the nutrients it requires to function (digestion) uses water at every stage. A lack of water results in less efficient assimilation of food and less effective of the body’s energy stores. Drink more water and you will better process fat. With more energy you will feel better too.
– Hydration improves brain function
The human brain works by generating and replicating electrical impulses. This entire system functions using the electrolyte ions present in the body. Electrolyte ions are made available in fluids that are primarily water. The brain is more water than almost any other organ (roughly 80% water in composition) so having access to water from the body helps it to work in the best possible manner.
So there are at least 6 reasons why being fully hydrated makes you healthier. Having a Water-to-Go filter bottle at hand supports you in staying hydrated, taking out a huge range of things that are bad for you whilst allowing you to drink healthy water wherever you are.
So, this World Water Day, have a think about how we value water and what we can do to ensure the sustainable future of our planet.
