“Green Talk” helps listeners, in their efforts to live more ecofriendly lifestyles, through interviews with top vendors, authors, and experts from around the world. We discuss the critical issues facing the global environment today, as well as the technologies, products, and practices that you can employ to go greener in every area of your life.

Hey everybody this is Sean Daily. Welcome to another episode of Green Talk Radio. It is good to be back. I was on a short vacation and we’re very happy to be back.

We have a very exciting episode today on a very important topic, which is clean safe drinking water for the planet.

I am just going to go over a few facts here that most people don’t realize about drinking water. Most of us really take it for granted.

I don’t know if most of you know this, but 1.1 billion lack access to an improved water supply. That’s approximately 1 in 6 people on earth.

2.6 billion people in the world lack access to improve sanitation. Less than 1% of the world’s fresh water, which is about 0.007% of all water on earth, is readily accessible for direct human use.

A person can live weeks without food, but only days without water. And one person needs 4 to 5 gallons of water per day to survive.

So we have this crisis which we’re not feeling it in all parts of the world, certainly not in most parts of the United States, but it is a major issue. So my guest today on the program to discuss this with me is from an organization whose mission is really to deal with this in a very unique way. Her name is Sabrina Walasek. The organization is the Blue Planet Run foundation at blueplanetrun.org,

Sabrina is the program director for Blue Planet Run. She is a former science teacher and educational content developer.

Sabrina welcome to the program.

Sabrina Walasek: Thanks so much Sean.

Sean: Well, it is good to have you. So why don’t we just jump right in. Tell me what is the Blue Planet Run foundation.

Sabrina: Sure....
