WORLD'S WATER CRISIS IS TOTALLY SOLVABLE

Finalist in Documentary Short

About this entry

You haven't even left for work yet, and you've already used more water than some villagers in rural India use in 8 weeks. In 2018, Cape Town, South Africa was dangerously close to becoming the world's first city to run out of H2O. Completely. Why should you care? What if we told you that, in just over 30 years, there's a good chance that you won't have the luxury of a morning shower either?

 In this short documentary we presented the problem and offered concrete solutions. At the heart of its mission Waste-Ed aims to inspire direct action. From changing our diets to the way we consume energy - there’s a lot more we can do than just keeping our showers short.
