It was a privilege to apply our knowledge and expertise to such an important cause
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 21, 2009
With more than 70 percent of the Earth's surface covered with water, it's difficult to celebrate Earth Day without celebrating water.
Today, Mightybytes, a Chicago-based creative media firm, launched its latest web site for Project WET, a global non-profit organization dedicated to worldwide water education.
"Now more than ever, our future - and that of our planet - is bound to water," said Project WET's Director of Development, Stephanie Kaleva. "We thought it appropriate to launch our new site on a day that honors our world."
With one in eight people worldwide without access to clean and abundant water, Project WET empowers individuals to develop sustainable solutions to local water resource issues by bringing training and educational materials to millions of people in 42 countries on five continents.
"Project WET's web site is absolutely critical to its mission of providing water education to a global community," said Mightybytes founder Tim Frick.
After understanding the needs of such a content-rich organization, Mightybytes expanded its reach with a new content-managed site that includes extensive education information, social media integration, a blog and interactive features such as animated U.S. and World maps communicating project WET's global impact.
Mightybytes employed standards-based development techniques to optimize the site for search engines and utilized best practices to enhance the site's navigation structure.
"It was a privilege to apply our knowledge and expertise to such an important cause," said Frick.
In honor of Earth Day and Project WET, here are ways to start conserving water today.
- Take shorter showers
- Use native or low-water plants in yards and gardens
- Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth or shaving
- Insulate your water pipes
- Operate your dish or clothes washers only when fully loaded
