More than seven billion people consume water all over the planet. With the population going through the roof, demand for water continues to intensify. World Health Organization (WHO) confirms that “only 0.007% of total global water supply” is safe for consumption. About 97.5% of the earth’s water is salty, while only 2.5 percent—where the 0.007 percent has been taken from—is the freshwater supply that the whole planet consumes.

This minuscule amount, which billions of people share, is putting a lot of pressure on the world’s most precious resource. Knowing just how much water you use daily can lead to a better understanding of how much water you can save at home. Awareness is always the building block of affirmative action. This infographic by Saniflo Depot emphasizes the effects of not caring about water and what happens to those who have limited access to it if household consumers don’t do their part and start bringing down daily water consumption soon.
