Do You Know H2O?

Discovering new ideas and products might be one of my favorite aspects of being a voiceover talent. From nature to industry to medicine, I’ve had the opportunity to learn from the scripts presented to me. It’s truly an on-going education!

Do you know these facts about water?

  • Only 3% of Earth’s water is fresh water. 97% of the water on Earth is salt water.
  • In one year, the average American residence uses over 100,000 gallons (indoors and outside).
  • Taking a bath requires up to 70 gallons of water. A five-minute shower uses only 10 to 25 gallons.
  • Water is the only substance found on earth naturally in three forms: solid, liquid and gas.

There have been many books written about this essential, natural resource but one of the most interesting I’ve come across was geared toward children. Water, written by François Michel and illustrated by Yves Larvor, is an interactive pull-tab, lift-the-flap guide explaining the water cycle. It’s the kind of book children of all ages will go back to time and time again and adults can look forward to reading.

Incidentally, there’s a new product on the market that actually makes water from air. It’s called the The Skywell and it’s creators hope to revolutionize water delivery by mimicking the water cycle. Allow me to tell you more below.

Now, I’m thirsty for a glass of fresh air.
