“WATER WILL BE THE OIL OF THE 21ST CENTURY!"
ALL WATER: Only 2.53% of all water in the world is fresh water.
FRESH WATER: 69.56% of all fresh water is frozen in glaciers and polar caps.
Meaning only 0.77% of all earth's water supports the entire world's population.
RIGHT NOW, THE WORLD USES MORE THAN HALF THE AVAILABLE FRESH WATER SUPPLY AND BY 2025 THAT WILL BE 90% *Source: I.M.F

On average, each person in developing lands use 20-40 litres of water per day.

OR $105,811,025.30 EVERY YEAR!
