No matter where we live, we can't live without water. A recent trip to Haiti broadened my perspective on water and how we use it - or abuse it - here in the United States. Daily we use about 110 gallons per person, while the rest of the world gets by on much less. In Haiti, water is close at hand along the coast, but getting safe drinking water is more complicated that just turning on the tap. In this video you'll follow me on a trek for drinking water and understand some of the issues facing Haitians. But you'll also see their unique approach to water use...only the best for drinking. My hope is that you'll consider your own water use and commit to conserving more.
