What are we doing still using drinking-quality water to flush our toilets?
As the powerful water masters meet in Bonn, Germany this week we hope water conservation and sensible usage gets an airing on the agenda. Only 2.5% is freshwater on our planet so its a precious resource we should protect. Scaremongering of water-wars in the future is not so stupid when you study the facts. This article makes interesting reading.
Photograph – I took this shot of Lake Windermere in March 2013. Windermere is the largest natural lake in England. I am currently working on a commission from Friends of the Lake District with the theme of water pollution. http://www.lakedistrict.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0019/170623/windermere_catchment_restoration_programme_leaflet.pdf
A small collection of sculptures will be created from the salvaged debris collected on a mass dive to the Lake depths.
