Pricey Water

”Without love, you can still live. But without water, you die,” underneath the slogan is the name Save Water campaign. 

It is a known fact, but somehow we are not aware of the importance of water in our life much that we usually contaminate our resource of living constantly. We use money like water and water like unlimited resource.

And that has a price to pay. A 500 ml. bottle of water in Germany cost up to 2 euros (80 Thai baht). This is to reduce our reckless use on plastic package, which consumes a lot of water in the plastic procedure, water retreatment, and recycling process, to name jsut a few. 

Besides, plastic lives longer than human beings. It lives 500 years or more. Perhaps, after human extinction, it is the plastic that will rule this planet Earth.

Have your own personal bottle can save our water and environment, as well as your money. If your government cannot provide you with drinkable water, you have the right to make them do it.

People power!

  1. The first time i arrived Germany, the first time in my life being away from home and family, the first time to learn how to run my life alone, i have to walk one kilometer to the railway station to buy two bottles of water and a plastic bag to carry them, because there was no shop opening after six o’clock in the evening.

    Walking through the windy winter, a bottle of water was dropped and broke, i suddenly lost my two deutsch mark (32 Baht in 1992 and we got free water in restaurants in Thailand).

    The pipeline water in the industrial city i was living in was inappropriate to drink, its color and odor were inacceptable.

    The water pot i used to boiled the water was fulled with calcium carbonate and broken in several years.

    It was the time in my life i do appreciate how precious the water is.

    i think that Thailand and some other place in the world got good luck for having good water resource in its land. i feel so confused to see expensive european mineral water being sold in supermarket. The bad luck luxury, i can say.

  2. Jah, thank you for sharing your thirsty experience with us. I’d like us to appreciate water before it is gone forever. I don’t want our planet to turn to Mars, dry and deserted.

    I was in India and saw people in line for water. I felt bad as I stayed in the hotel where people enjoyed lots of water in the bathtub.

    Let’s share tips on how to maximise the benefits of water we use at minimal level. And let’s practise it.
