Inhabitat Links of the Week

world water day, one drop world water day, world water forum, clean safe water day [1]

We support good (and green!) design because we believe that it changes people’s lives for the better. We usually focus a large portion of our attention on the products and efforts made by architects, designers and artists that increase our comfort and level of eco-consciousness. This week, however, we want to get back to the basics.  Did you know that nearly one billion people do not have access to safe drinking water? Or that a child dies every eight seconds due to diseases caused by contaminated water? With this in mind, we hope you will join us in supporting the cause for clean, safe water for everyone by tweeting and digging [2] for World Water Day!
