50 Shades Of Blue Environment

Visual Aid: Do You Think You Can Drink This?

As you can probably tell, India is battling some serious groundwater pollution.

What’s causing it?

– Human and animal waste

– Using chemical fertilizers to maximize food production

– Dumping of garbage and pollution in river water

All this affects our health causing millions of cases of diarrhoea, typhoid and viral hepatitis!

Some 650 cities/towns and 65% of our villages are drinking contaminated groundwater. Adding to this already toxic situation, 90% of India’s groundwater has already been used up and it’s going to take the land years to generate more.

Basically, we’re completely screwed!
