Showers, watering the plants, cooking, cleaning, drinking during a run – we use water in countless ways every day. In fact, each American uses an average of 100 gallons every single day. (Yes, 100!) But if you were challenged, could you make do with less? Like, a lot less?
That is the question posed by DIGDEEP – a water conservation and advocacy organization based in California. Their challenge? Live on just 4 liters (a little over 1 gallon) of water for 24 hours. Why 4 liters? It’s the same amount of water that nearly a billion people in the world survive on each day.
Think you can do it? Sign up to take the challenge. (With the water and rain-focused holiday of Sukkot just behind us, now is the perfect time!) While you’re at it, you can let your friends and family know what you’re up to, learn more about countries’ water needs, track your challenge, and raise funds to help DIGDEEP build sustainable water projects in the communities across the world that need it most.
