March 22 Is World Water Day!

This World Water Day, the United Nations is asking the world to be more conscious of the enormous amounts of water it takes to produce the foods we enjoy each day. The theme, “The World Is Thirsty Because We Are Hungry,” focuses on how global increases in food waste are contributing to water scarcity, and the U.N. warns we may be headed for an uncertain future if we don’t act now. —Naeesa Aziz
