Water is a major resource that we all take for granted. With approximately 70% of the Earth covered in salt water oceans, it’s easy to forget that there are places in the world that are without water. National Geographic is also concerned with how much water we use here in the United States and how that affects rivers, lakes, wetlands, underground aquifers, and freshwater species.
That’s why they’ve introduced the Water Footprint Calculator, an online questionnaire that asks questions about the way water is consumed in your home. National Geographic states:
“We live in a watery world, with the average American lifestyle fueled by nearly 2,000 gallons of H2O a day. What may come as a surprise is that very little of that—only five percent—runs through toilets, taps, and garden hoses at home. Nearly 95 percent of your water footprint is hidden in the food you eat, energy you use, products you buy, and services you rely on.”
The National Geographic Society encourages you to find out your Water Footprint and the “pledge to cut your water footprint and help return more water to rivers, lakes, wetlands, underground aquifers, and freshwater species.”

To be thankful is to be grateful, appreciative and express gratitude. Being thankful is not limited to a particular holiday or situation, but resonates with a universal expression of compassion and love for the people and things that matters the most. As we reflect on the people we love, work with, worship with or simply socialize with, there is a unique connection we probably cannot define, that ignites a feeling of belonging even if expressed individually.
Thankfulness embraces the smiles, hugs and encouragement that we exchange everyday with people of diverse ethnicities, creeds and cultures. As you gather around your dinner tables, watch television, do chores together, engage in entertaining or encouraging conversations, continue to ask yourself on a daily basis, what are you thankful for? When you take the time to ask yourself this simple question, you will experience an epiphany that makes you humble and thankful for what is important in your life that would ordinarily leave a deep-rooted void in your heart if it were no longer there.
Regardless of how and if you choose to celebrate Thanksgiving Day, take the time to reflect on how grateful you really are. The Filters Fast Family would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
