Our bodies are made up of 65-70% of water. The world contains about 71% of water, of that 97.5%mis salt water leaving only 2.5% for fresh drinking water.

Some companies have already incorporated rain harvesting systems into their building structures. Most of them use it for basic water necessities such as a sprinkler system or even water for toilets. There is even an entire building that is designing its structure around a rain harvesting system. This building is called the Shanghai Tower, and although it will not be ready until 2014, it is sure to lead in example as to what needs to be done to save the people of this planet while also helping it.
