The four classical elements are water, fire, air and earth. Seventy-three percent of the human heart and brain is composed of water. A person is unlikely to survive more than three days without water. It is essential. And yet, much of our water is polluted and unclean. The mission of Food & Water Watch is very pragmatic: Advocating for "common sense policies that improve the way our food is grown and produced, and make our drinking water safe and affordable." This week's DDG featured org helps everyday people understand the importance of clean water. They organize advocates to protect food and water. They address problems such as fracking, factory farming and food safety, pollution trading and more.
FWW partners with both grassroots and national organizations to protect food and water, including campaigns to label GMO's, end overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, and a program called Take Back the Tap, which works with colleges and universities to promote drinking tap water over bottled, thus reducing waste and introducing less plastic into the waterways. You can support the FWW's goals simply by making some conscientious lifestyle choices, or you can take action through organizing, volunteering or making a donation.
