18 Days of Global Goals (Day 7)

6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

40% of the world's population live without access to sanitation. * This global goal calls for toilets and clean drinking water for everyone. It also promotes protecting and restoring natural water resources over the next five years. **

Asking yourself what you can do to help the UN reach their goal?

On a National level: Use all natural soaps, that are biodegradable. Invest in permeable driveways and sidewalks for your property. Utilize water collection containers to water your lawns. Change your nozzles and toilet systems to use less water. Think about converting to gray water systems.

On a International level: Volunteer or donate to a group who is trying to provide clean water and sanitation around the world like, http://www.wateraid.org/
