How much poop is in your drinking water?


No Quick Fixes

Experienced Planet Greeners may expect to see a list of actions and potential solutions right about here...but this is not an easily fixable problem. Obviously, we should've never despoiled so much water in the first place but until larger cultural and institutional factors are considered (or we force them to be considered), we can act locally:

- Build your own DIY water filter

- Visit the tap water database to learn more about your area

- Create less waste
