081 The One about Pure Water for the World
Episode 81: Show Notes
Speaking for myself, days can go by without me thinking about where my water comes from. I turn on the faucet and crystal-clear water comes out. It is there when I need it. Our water is clean and free from pathogens. However, it is not like this all over the world. In fact, more places don’t have good drinking water than places that do.
As an industrial water treater, our job starts and ends with water. Without water we would all be in another career. I’ve always wanted to try retail…
Because we are industrial water treaters, we have an enormous opportunity to not only save water, but educate others about water. Join me as I interview Carolyn Mueb of Pure Water for the World. PWW, was introduced to me by The Association of Water Technologies (AWT.) To be perfectly honest, I thought it was a strange partnership. However, after taking the time to find out more, I can see where there are synergies between the 2 organizations. It is my belief that you will also change your mind on not only how you think about water but how so many do not have the same access to it.
