Earth Day at the Oakland Zoo – Photos

Earth Day was so much fun, and it was great seeing everyone who stopped by to say Hello. It was a beautiful day to be outdoors in such a beautiful setting. Educating people about making water from air is always fun, and we got to give away a fun basket of goodies. Our water drop mascot was a big hit with the kids too. See some photos below from the day.IMG_1070 IMG_1060 IMG_1057 IMG_1055 20160423_105732 20160423_100357IMG_1101 IMG_1098 IMG_1090 IMG_1088 IMG_1077 IMG_1074

Happy World Water Day!

Happy World Water Day!

Take time to reflect on your water usage, and how you can do your part to conserve. Take time to reflect on all the local and foreign communities without a drop of safe water to drink. Take time to reflect on the technologies available out there that can make a difference.

And how timely is it that we launched a commercial in the heart of Times Square in New York today? It can be seen at least once an hour in the upper left screen on THIS webcam. If you find your self wandering through Times Square over the next couple of months and see it, please take a picture and share it with us.

Some facts from the World Water Day website.

Water, Economy and jobs

• Improving  water  productivity  to  close  the  worldwide  gap  between  supply  and  demand  for  water  will  cost  US$50-­‐60  billion annually over the next 20 years. With private sector investment comprising about half of that spending, positive returns could be expected in just three years (Boccaletti et al., 2009).
• It is estimated that 95% of jobs in the agriculture sector, 30% of jobs in the industry sector, and 10% of jobs in the services sector are heavily dependent on water. It is estimated that 5% of jobs in the agriculture sector, 60% of jobs in the industry sector and 30% of jobs in the services sector are moderately dependent on water. Nonetheless, not every job in the various subsector categories is equally dependent on water.
• An estimated 40% of the global economically-­‐active population work in crop and animal production, fisheries or hunting. Yet, only 20% are employed as waged workers (World Bank, 2005), and the remaining are self-­‐employed or contribute family labour to around 570 million farms.
• Worldwide, some of the most water-­‐intensive industry sectors employ great numbers of people: 22 million in food and drink (with 40% women), 20 million in chemical, pharmaceutical, and rubber and tyres, as well as 18 million in electronics.
• Water  supply  and  wastewater  facilities  operators  employ  about  80%  of  the  workers  in  the  water  industry  (UNESCO-­‐UNEVOC, 2012).
• The  energy  sector,  with  growing  water  withdrawal  that  currently  accounts  for  about  15%  of  the  world’s  total,  provides  direct employment.

Global perspectives on water

• Freshwater withdrawals have increased globally by about 1% per year since 1980’s, mainly due to growing demand in developing countries.
• Water resources are under pressure, with water scarcity affecting around 40% of the global population (CAWMA, 2007).
• An estimated 663 million people lack ready access to improved sources of drinking water (WHO/UNICEF, 2015).
• Between 2011 and 2050, the world population is expected to increase by 33%, growing from 7.0 billion to 9.3 billion (UN DESA, 2011), and food demand will rise by 70% in the same period (Bruinsma, 2009).
• Agriculture accounts for roughly 70% of total freshwater withdrawals globally and for over 90% in the majority of Least Developed Countries (LDCs) (FAO, 2011). Without improved efficiency measures, agricultural water consumption is expected to increase by about 20% globally by 2050 (WWAP, 2012).

Do you know what is in your Drinking Water?

Today an article was published on the heels of the Flint, Michigan crisis, stating that Flint is not the only city that reported lead in their water over the last 10+ years. Some of the others were: Sebring, Ohio, Washington, D.C., Durham and Greenville, N.C., Columbia, S.C., Jackson, Miss. (just last month), and I’m sure many others unreported. You can read more in the article HERE.

In 2001, the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) performed a survey of 19 cities of their water quality (and other concerns). If you view the images below, it is very disturbing. The infrastructure is only going to get worse, and not better, unless something is done about it. In the meantime, what do you do?

  1. If you have looked into filtration, you should make sure you have done the research to make sure the specific contaminants in your area are being removed by the system you choose.

  2. There is always atmospheric generators technology. With these solutions, you bypass city water entirely for your drinking water needs. Make water from air, and use them as a hybrid filtration system if needed.

  3. Speak to your government officials and local organizations and share your concern for the water you are drinking. EcoloBlue has solutions that can help entire communities out with millions of liters of water every day.

Take action and be part of the solution.

Flint: What to Do With Empty Water Bottles?

EXACTLY!!!

I have been telling people this over and over again. Why spend a fortune on one time use plastic bottled water, and then toss those bottles into a landfill? Educating people that you can have a solution, that makes water every day for 10-20 years (depending on the model), and you can just refill the same bottle over and over, is difficult. I’m not sure what people don’t get. Sure, the value of some of our larger machines might be higher than what people can afford. However, The amount of money given by the government or charitable organizations to invest in one time use water is such a waste. And that same money could purchase several of our renewable solutions. We saw this when Toledo, Ohio water crisis occurred. The city alone paid over $30,000 in bottled water, not including whatever was spent in donations.

Think about this…what if a city going through a crisis was able to get funding to purchase some of our large units. Then what if they were placed in community locations where people could fill up their own water bottles. Then what happens to the machines once the crisis is over? Why not lease them to the next city in need when that crisis comes around. Or better yet, an organization such as Salvation Army, Red Cross, etc could purchase the machines and just distribute them on an as needed basis wherever they are needed most.

People need to give this some serious thought.

“We have this influx of plastic coming into our community,” said Kris Thiel, vice president of Young’s Environmental Cleanup, a private hazardous waste hauling company that has donated four large recycling receptacles to Flint. In less than 24 hours, one of the bins filled up with a whopping 680 pounds of empty water bottles, Thiel told NBC News.

The bins are filling up faster than the city can empty them — especially since only a sliver of residents are signed up for curbside recycling, according to Michigan Public Radio.

Since officials acknowledged that pipes are leaching lead into the city’s drinking supply, millions of bottles of water have been donated to Flint’s 102,000 residents. Puff Daddy and Mark Wahlberg donated a million bottles on Monday, and other celebrities, including the members of Pearl Jam and the Detroit Lions, have sent hundreds of thousands of bottles, too.

In a plea on Wednesday, Flint native Michael Moore, the documentary filmmaker, asked people to stop sending bottled water.

“You would have to send 200 bottles a day, per person,” he wrote on his website. “That’s 102,000 citizens times 200 bottles of water – which equals 20.4 million 16oz. bottles of water per day, every day, for the next year or two until this problem is fixed (oh, and we’ll need to find a landfill in Flint big enough for all those hundreds of millions of plastic water bottles, thus degrading the local environment even further).”

EcoloBlue and Moisture Vaporators

With the new Star Wars movie coming out, it was fun to go back and see how our technology has been compared to moisture vaporators. While they look much different, they perform the same function. George Lucas was ahead of his time. While similar technology existed back then, he realized that it was a necessity and saw into the future.
