Water – The Elixir of Life

Written By Trisha Rao


Water is the most essential component of life and is vital for nutrition. Around 60 % of human body is made up of water and we can only live three to five days without fluids. Water plays many important roles in the body including flushing waste from the body, regulating body temperature, transportation of nutrients and is necessary for digestion.

It is useful in many industries like the steel industry, fertilizers, chemicals, cement, paper, etc. Through water, we are also generating electricity. It is an essential source of fish, wildlife, and recreation. 15 % of water is consumed for domestic purpose. It is used for drinking, bathing, cooking food and washing dishes, clothes, fruits, vegetables and brushing teeth.

The average person unknowingly wastes up to 30 gallons of water every day. Think of “water efficiency” as a way to eliminate wasteful water practices and promote the long-term goal of saving water.

Water is a non-renewable natural resource. If we do not work together towards conservation of water, Earth will meet its ultimate demise sooner than we think.
