One of the most important substances on the face of this Earth is water. It may seem strange for me to talk about how important something seemingly so common is, but the truth is that sadly not everyone has access to this lifegiving liquid. Even in this country, many people are not able to consume the recommended amount of water due to poverty levels, homelessness, or a lack of usable tap water for any number of reasons. This is extremely dangerous because the human body cannot survive more than an average of three days without some form of liquid and water is the healthiest thing to drink in order to stay alive.
This is important to remember when it comes to making choices in your life when it comes to many different things. For example, longer showers can use extra water that now needs to be reprocessed. Using bottled water to clean things like dishes or water plants may have a negative impact on the use that this water could have had. This water may have been used as its original purpose while tap water could have served perfectly fine in these other tasks. While tap water isn’t always the best to drink, there is nothing wrong with having it used to clean things in your home or even on your body. After all, we don’t pour bottled water into our washing machines to clean our clothes and yet are still satisfied with the result.
Here at Neptune, we are always on the lookout for ways to help keep clean water in the hands of those who need it. One way that we do this through our work is to keep up with new technology that can help to conserve water both in our work and home lives. Things like wastewater reclaim and other forms of filtration are researched and added into our automated wash systems along with other machines that we produce. While we know that we alone cannot change the world and make sure that water will become available to all, we do hope that our equipment and our business model will help to bring awareness to this issue and that others will follow in our footsteps when it comes to conserving fresh and clean water for those who truly need it and yet may not have the access that those of us who are more fortunate do.
