Throughout her educational experiences and research, Ally Tate has learned a lot about the significance of water conservation.
Fresh water is a very limited resource that many people take for granted. In many cases, individuals take fresh water for granted unknowingly, which is why Ally Tate and many other clean water activists across the globe are working to educate the public on how to use and conserve clean water effectively.
In her daily interactions with people including friends, family, neighbors, and others in her community, Ally Tate has noticed that many individuals are completely unaware or misinformed about the lack of clean, fresh water in many parts of the world. This is largely due to the fact that these individuals have what seems to be unlimited access to water. They are not exposed to the daily challenges that millions around the world are suffering with simply because it is often not represented on the news, in their social feeds, or in their local vicinity.
Because of these observations, Ally Tate has taken it upon herself to help spread the word and raise awareness about water conservation.
While over 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is made up of water, less than 2 percent of water on Earth is fresh and clean and only one percent drinkable, the rest being frozen in glaciers. The remaining 96+ percent of Earth’s water is the salt water of the oceans and seas.
There are many ways in which individuals of all ages and backgrounds can help conserve our limited clean and fresh water. Even the smallest acts and changes will make a major impact overtime.
The average human being uses up between 80 and 100 gallons of water each day. This includes a combination of brushing your teeth, flushing the toilet, taking showers and baths, washing the dishes, watering the lawn, drinking water, along with other daily activities you probably don’t even think about.
Ally Tate encourages everyone to try to cut down on water use in at least one or two ways everyday. Not only will water conservation help increase the amount of available fresh water for all, it will also help save energy and cut down on costs.
