Annual Program Emphasizes Water Conservation

Imagine a day without water.
· How would it feel?
· What would you do?
· How would it change your life?
These are some of the questions the Imagine a Day Without Water program is asking us to think about. This National Day of Action is on Oct. 19, 2023, each year. It is a global initiative to raise awareness and inspire action on the water crisis that affects millions of people around the world.
According to Water.org, 771 million people currently lack access to safe water and nearly one million people die annually due to the lack of safe water.
“The numbers are staggering,” says Klaus Reichardt, CEO and founder of Waterless Co. Inc. manufacturers of no-water urinals and other restroom products. “But they don't tell the whole story. Behind these statistics, there are human beings who suffer from the consequences of water scarcity and contaminated water.”
He says this is why Waterless Co. is proud to support Imagine a Day Without Water and join the global movement to make water a priority for everyone.
“We believe that waterless [urinal] technology is one way to help reduce water consumption, save money, and protect the environment. Fortunately, more no-water urinals are being installed around the world today than ever before.”
But Reichardt adds that waterless products are not enough to solve the water crisis.
“We need collective action, political will, and social change to ensure that everyone has access to safe and sufficient water, and one more thing, learns how to use water efficiently.”
He adds that by participating and recognizing this special day and all that it means, “we will gain a deeper understanding of the value of water and the urgency of the water crisis.”
