Into each life some rain must fall. ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
And we have seen rain (mixed with snow here) across the country this week. While it can sometimes feel like a dreary thing, that rain is all-important, especially when we note that today is World Water Day according to the United Nations. In fact, their website notes that;
“International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.”
They further go on to note that 1 in 3 people live in a country where water stress is either moderate or at high stress. That is due to competition between agricultural, industrial, rural and urban uses, as well as the needs by the rest of the creatures that depend upon water to survive. It is a highly valuable resource and one that needs more recognition in protecting it to ensure there is enough freshwater for generations to come. How do you use water? In what ways do you ensure that it will be around for future generations? Now is the time to think about that and do what you can to make sure the world has access to freshwater for years to come.
We all need to drink it to survive! Think about that when you reach for your water bottle. When you do, Babybox.com can help you make a statement at the gym, park or beach with our Clairebella personalized water bottles. Apart from being stylish and comfortable, they are Eco-friendly as well. Take it any place from gym, park, office or even for shopping girls! It comes in 8”t x 3”w size with 20 oz. The bottle is extremely handy with two lids and a carabiner key clip for attaching it easily. It is BPA free as well. The maximum characters that can be written are 7.
Appreciate water in all its essences with this beautiful nursery decor. The “Little Sailor Oceanic Water” let your little child’s thoughts sail high through the deep blue sea with custom canvas wall hanging. This detailed painting is wonderfully reproduced on the museum-archival-quality canvas into an original design by using the giclée method of fine art printing.
It is hand-trimmed and measures 2ft x 3ft that brings to life the detailed edges of this canvas. This “Little Sailor” wall hanging is available in oceanic water color or it can also be ordered in the choice of your favorite color. You can also get the canvas personalized with the child’s name (e.g. Captain Evan), our standard text (e.g. Little Sailor), or one of your favorite phrase. Please make sure to specify your preferred choice of color and personalization before ordering this wall-hanging.
Here’s a little more water here. This attractive, star shaped Whoozit water mat by Manhattan Toys is a fun way to develop motor skills in your baby. The beautiful color will attract baby’s attention immediately. The friendly Whoozit encourages baby to watch and touch. This mat is easy to fill and has floating foam pieces that move when baby touches the mat for cause-effect learning.
Water better way to appreciate water, then by cooling off in it for a delightful swim! One of our favorite new styles for 2013. This brand new style, Candy Stripe 3 Piece Sport set Bikini with pink rash top is gorgeous. Features sports top with matching UV50+ sun protection rash top. Comes with Ruffle bikini bottom. For all those girls who loves bikinis and the moms who want sun protection.
So this year, take responsibility into your hands to make sure that generations to come will still have fresh water at hand…
