Whilst the earth is covered with 71 per cent water, only an amazing two per cent of that water can be consumed. The rest makes up our seas or is locked away in the ice caps. So, although we may view water as a never-ending renewable resource, we must remember we share this with the rest of the animal and plant kingdom.

It is estimated that each person in the UK uses 155 litres of water per day, while someone in a developing country uses just 20 litres. Reasons for why these amounts vary so greatly can be found in lifestyle differences and access to water.
