Today is Blog Action Day. Blog Action Day is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking a global discussion and driving collective action. This year’s theme is water.
Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us who are subject to preventable disease and even death because of something that many of us take for granted.
Access to clean water is not just a human rights issue. It’s an environmental issue. An animal welfare issue. A sustainability issue. Water is a global issue, and it affects all of us.
In 2008 photographer Munem Wasif was commissioned by the Prix Pictet, the world’s first prize dedicated to photography and sustainability, to document Water Aid’s projects in Bangladesh. His series Salt Water Tears shows the devastating effects of a rise in salinity around the Bay of Bengal in Bangladesh.
