Merici College Green Tip #25 - No Water, No Life!

Just a quick tip this week to remind us all of how important water is in our daily lives. 

According to Cool Australia most fresh water is used in farming and agriculture. Only 5% of all water is fresh water and more than 70% of this is frozen (mostly as ice in Antarctica). That leaves us with only 1% of all the water on our Earth to use to grow crops, raise animals, cool coal fired power plants, power industry and use at home, work and school.
