The infographic, which was published in Mother Nature Networks, reveals that a sixth of the world’s population do not have access to clean water, whilst a third do not have access to sufficient sanitation. The image also revealed that in Africa alone, women spend 40 billion hours a year fetching water, and that diarrheal diseases cost 6.4 billion working days and 544 million school days per year. Despite this concerning figures, hand washing alone could reduce water related deaths by 35%.

A representative shares their thoughts on the matter.
“The data shown in the infographic really highlights the difference in water and sanitation systems in different countries throughout the world. The plumbing industry is continually working to try and improve conditions where there is not sufficient water and sanitation access.
However, in the meantime, there are things people can do to ensure they aren’t wasting water. Checking for leaks can save as much as 3000 gallons of water a year according to the infographic, as well as saving you money on your water bills!”
