Though laws like the 1974 Safe Drinking Water Act promote the regulation of contaminants in water, it doesn’t mean that all pollutants are regulated, or that violations aren’t widespread. According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), there are more than 287 contaminants found in US tap water. The solution? Get a water filter.

- Vegetated land cover helps regulate the flow of water through a watershed by intercepting, absorbing, and slowly releasing water. This “sponge” effect can reduce adverse impacts such as stream bank erosion, sediment transport, and the frequency and severity of floods and drought.
- Natural resources such as wetlands, stream buffers, and vegetated land cover can also naturally

Water covers more than 70 % of Earth’s surface. It was in water that life on Earth started, so it is not surprising that all living things on our blue planet need water.

Sea plants, like Posidonia, produce 70% of the oxygen we breathe (1), and the deep waters are home to wildlife and some of the biggest creatures on earth. It provides us with food, jobs, life, entertainment, and sailing! Without it, we cannot survive. Why should we care so much about the creatures that live in the ocean?
