Nonprofits of the Month :: July 2010 :: Peak Water

July 2, 2010

Peak water is reached when the rate at which water demanded is higher than the rate at which the supply is replenished. By 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two-thirds of the world population could be under stress conditions. The nonprofits below are committed to reversing this trend through education and conservation in hopes of preventing the looming global water crisis:

    It is our global responsibility to save the future world from the crisis of water by being more conscious today, making the awareness in all areas now so that in future the demand of water does not exceed the supply.

    The Groundwater Foundation’s mission is to educate people and inspire action to ensure sustainable, clean groundwater for future generations.

    Everyone benefits from a sustainable supply of clean groundwater, whether it is
    the source of your drinking water or the water used to grow the food on your
    table – groundwater is vital to life. As such, every person plays a role in
    protecting and conserving groundwater. The Groundwater Foundation provides
    motivational and inspirational education and community-based action programs
    that creatively involve individuals, communities, private and public entities in
    groundwater conservation and protection.

    So Let’s Keep It Clean!
