“Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink!” This was an old poem in our school reader in the 1920s.
How could they have known of our “water crisis?” When did we become so parched?
Who remembers when we didn’t need a bottle of water in the seat pocket of the car? When did it become fashionable to visibly, carry a bottle of water?
Why does every politician on TV seem to need a bottle of water on the podium? So much water wasted needlessly! And yet we read of our water levels declining in lakes and wells.
My solution is that we only drink when we are thirsty. Also, a trip to the water tap could quench our thirst, as well as create exercise. Speakers should ask for a glass of water and not a whole bottle! Also, there would be no plastic bottles in the garbage disposal.
Perhaps my humble solution may save our water.
