Earth Day is a celebration of our planet and a reminder to practice sustainability every day.
Earth Day, for me, is a time for reflection of accomplishments and future goals in our stewardship of our planet.
To stimulate progressive action in conservation of our natural habitat.
To encourage others to adopt sustainable practices of our limited resources.
To pledge involvement and commitment of ourselves in improving awareness and policy.
To teach others the benefits, socially and economically of sustainability.
To work with all to protect our earth.
After all it is up to us as inhabitants.
Here is an innovative way of collecting water in a dry environment.
With water fairly easily accessible in the US, let’s not forget it is a precious resource – a basic human right – that may not be so readily available in other areas of the world.
“Inspired to offer solution to this issue in a creative way, designer Arturo Vittori invented stunning water towers that can harvest atmospheric water vapor from the air. The nearly 30-foot tall WarkaWater towers can collect over 25 gallons of portable water per day, and are comprised of two sections. The first is a semi-rigid exoskeleton built by tying stalks of juncus or bamboo together; the second, an internal plastic mesh similar to the bags oranges are packed in. The nylon and polypropylene fibers act as a scaffold for condensation, and once droplets of dew form, are funneled by the mesh into a basin at the base of the structure.”
