World Water Day is an international United Nations holiday, observed every year on March 22. Clean and safe water is something that is still not accessible to many people around the globe, and even in some parts of the United States! World Water Day brings awareness to this issue and to how important it is to make freshwater accessible to everyone, for drinking and sanitation purposes. There are currently 2.2 billion people living with no access to clean and safe water, which means this is a global water crisis that we need to take action against.
