What is our most precious resource?

(and it is not diamonds)

Concerned about our most precious resource? My family and I visited the Eco Park in Mougins, France and we were shocked with four pieces of information we found out about our most precious resource.

Here is what we learned:

Number One

We found out only one percent of the earths drinkable water is used for drinking.

Number Two

We found out that that 1.1 billion people do not have access to drinkable water and that contaminated drinking water is the greatest killer of human beings.

Number Three

We found out that that 70 percent of our fresh water is used in agriculture, 20 percent is used in industry and 10 percent for domestic use.

Number Four

To help more people buy organic food on a small budget we wrote a guide filled with tips on how to buy organic food cheaply.

We were initially asked to write this guide by friends who were amazed we could afford to buy organic food when we were on a monthly income of less than $1,000 for a family of 3. 

We sold the guide first as a paper book called How to Buy Organic Food Inexpensively. Then I decided to end the use of paper, add an additional volume of tips to the guide and offer both volumes as e-books. All at a killer low price. Read about how to buy organic food cheaply here.
