“It’s estimated that we use 9tn cubic metres of water every year. As the global population grows, it is becoming an increasingly precious resource, with millions forced to walk for more than a mile to collect their daily supply. We investigate the innovative technologies that will help tackle our water crisis in future.”

 

The Guardian examines some of the technologies of the future which may help to ease the world’s water crisis. The only thing missing? Desolenator!

“Water regulator Ofwat has outlined the charging limits for Britain’s 18 water firms. This sets out how much they can charge for water supply over the next five years. After years of escalating prices, millions of homes are set to enjoy stable or falling bills.”

The Telegraph outlines details of the new limits in a handy Q&A.

“Weather experts are speculating that icy conditions will be similar to the Big Freeze of 2010 and even as bad as the infamous winter of 1963.”

The Lincolnshire Echo discusses the likelihood of a white Christmas in Britain this year.

Desolenator: reaching out to your community

We’re very thankful to Clay Gordon, who has written an uplifting and humbling post about Desolenator on his blog, TheChocolateLife. As he has written:

“I am happy to collect donations (through PayPal) from members of the community and then purchase a Desolenator on behalf of the worldwide ChocolateLife membership. If I receive enough to purchase two Desolenators then I will purchase two of them for the community. (Any monies below/above evenly divisible multiples of $650 will be donated for other perks in the name of TheChocolateLife community.”

It’s great to see that online communities are coming together to buy Desolenators. Let’s hope Clay’s call to arms is successful!

So if you’re a blogger or leader of an organisation, please consider reaching out to your community of followers and friends to tell them about Desolenator. It’s fantastic to have our cause being championed from all angles – we hope to read more like this in the future.
