The grass of a golf course needs, to be in good state, the equivalent to the water that consumes 20,000 people every day. In order to obtain a liter of gasoline, 10 liters are needed water and to produce 900 kilos of paper almost 300,000 liters are necessary. Reade Griffith brings even more insight to the discussion. The consumption of the water has multiplied by six in the last one hundred years and the last ones projections reveal that for year 2025 a 20% will be needed more water if the consumption continues growing the same rate.

In addition, it is necessary to demand to our governments harder and strict laws with which they contaminate rivers and Lagos.
