What a great time to talk about water when we are celebrating World Environment Day this June 5th. Every DAY we have the opportunity to make a great impact in the world. Any positive action counts even small ones.
Now, in terms of water, our actions could be stronger by having in mind the reasons why we have to be part of the movement towards preserving our natural resources. Water as a natural resource is vital to life but spent in great amounts through our everyday activities and consumption.
Food production accounts for roughly 70% of freshwater use; however, a third of the food produced is not consumed. This means that about 23.3% of fresh water is wasted due to food waste. Fruits and vegetables make up the majority of the food lost or wasted in the production process.
It is hard to believe that there are millions of people suffering from food insecurity and lack of water while tons of food are wasted every year. There are great solutions out there to help fight this situation and strong hearts with the sole purpose to support “waste reduction” efforts. Many of the successful projects in relation to the environment will become part of my posts.
You will get to see the analysis of projects that others are doing and their successes. Stay with me as we move forward. Perhaps you will become the next leader in your community.

Welcome to our website LIVE Air-Water-Soil.
This is my very first post, so let me introduce what this website is about. Give me the opportunity to tell you.
Live Air-Water-Soil is about successful green community projects. An organization founded in this year 2019 on the belief that a healthier community comes from a healthy environment. We believe the root of many health problems is, in most cases, due to environmental pollution.
There are successful community projects in action; however, they need to be shared in a different context. Many environmental and activists come up with great community projects, sadly many don’t make it beyond their community. Circumstances such as lack of funds to continue, lack of a reflection of their success, the project are not easily replicable among other issues. Well, here is the situation, if we really want to make an impact in the world, we don’t have to begin from scratch anymore. Nowadays, many people have created projects with great potential for replication anywhere and have the numbers to back up their success.
To begin this journey, I will share that my effort focuses on successful community projects in action with an environmental aspect as well as solutions to real-world problems.
Walk with me on this journey because the light is far from reach, the steps are heavy to take, and the tunnel is dark to follow. One sand grain might not be noticeable, but collectively you can see the difference.
My hand is extended for your hand to shake it. Join me in this effort.
