World Water Day in Bhopal

In honour of World Water Day (Tuesday 22nd March), we’ve decided to look at how we use water in day to day life; and when you get down to thinking about it, water is pretty damn important in pretty much everything we do! But even the smallest thing that we use water for could be potentially dangerous for the people of Bhopal. This is simply because the contamination in their water supply is getting worse and worse, thanks to the chemicals, just sat seeping into the ground under the abandoned factory site, waiting to be cleaned up after 27 years.

So here’s a list of some of the main uses for water, imagine trying to do any of these things with chemically poisoned water…

  1. Drink it – not safe in Bhopal
  2. Clean you teeth with it – not safe in Bhopal
  3. Wash yourself with it – not safe in Bhopal
  4. Wash your clothes in it – safe in Bhopal
  5. Swim in it – not safe in Bhopal
  6. Cook with it – safe in Bhopal, so long as the water’s boiled
  7. Water plants with it – safe in Bhopal, so long as you don’t eat what you’re growing
  8. Agriculture – not safe in Bhopal, the chemicals will get into the produce
