Many Canadians turn on the faucet and take it for granted the water will flow without giving much thought to where the water comes from and how they may use it. And why not – Canada's a water-rich country and couldn't possibly run out, right?
Well, not quite. Back in the 1960s when gasoline cost just cents a litre, few would have imagined a future where fossil fuels are scarce, commanding premium prices and sparking a global scramble for sustainable energy.
Many experts believe globally, water will be the next contested and coveted commodity. And it may happen quicker than you'd think – Environment Canada predicts that in thirty years, nearly 1/3 of the world's population won't have access to clean water.
Water, and its efficient usage, matters now more than ever and being proactive and preventative is key to ensuring we have clean water for generations to come. That's why the Canadian Institute for Plumbing & Heating (CIPH), a not for profit trade association representing Canada's manufacturers and wholesaler distributers of plumbing and hydronic heating products, created Because Water Matters
CIPH launched Because Water Matters on behalf of its 260+ members as a way to parlay their passion for all things plumbing and commitment to conservation into a comprehensive website designed to educate Canadians about: water; and the vital role plumbing plays in its efficient usage. From their technological innovation to their efforts towards increased water efficiency, water is their business and Because Water Matters is the channel through which they share their knowledge.
