There’s a long way to go as a society when it comes to water. We generally don’t have an understanding of the water coming out of our faucets or showers in spite of our incredible need for that resource. And all the while our sources of fresh water are drying up. That’s why each week we’ll cover topics and speak with experts that you most likely haven’t heard before.
