Each year, World Water day is celebrated on March 22nd, and each year, there is a theme.
This year’s theme is: Water and Food Security: The world is thirsty because we are hungry.

Statistics say that each of us drinks from 2 to 4 litres of water every day, however most of the water we ‘drink’ is embedded in the food we eat: producing 1 kilo of beef for example consumes 15,000 litres of water while 1 kilo of wheat ’drinks up’ 1,500 litres.

Happy World Water Day!
