30+ Water-Inspired Websites: BAD 2010

by

This year, Nettuts+ is taking part in Blog Action Day to raise awareness about clean water and water conservation. To tie that in with the web development world, we've compiled 30+ examples of websites, which make use of a water motif.

Startling Fact: Two million children under the age of five die from unsafe drinking water every single year. While many members of the Nettuts+ community (including myself) are in a constant state of saving for Adobe CSX, or any other expensive gadget, it can become alarmingly easy to forget that as many as a billion people on the planet don't have access to something as simple as clean drinking water.

However, these scary statistics are not beyond our control. Did you know that even a $20 donation to sites like "Charity: Water" can provide one person with clean drinking water for twenty years? Money that we so often frivolously waste -- on junk we don't need -- could be put to much better use.

Sometimes, it's easy to do nothing -- if only because you feel that you must give a lot in order for it to count. On the contrary, this couldn't be further from the truth. If you only donated your lunch money for a day or two...that would absolutely make a difference. I'm in; are you?

About Blog Action Day

"Blog Action Day (originally created by Envato) is an annual event held every October 15 that unites the world’s bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day with the aim of sparking a global discussion and driving collective action."


Why Water?

"Right now, almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. That’s one in eight of us who are subject to preventable disease and even death because of something that many of us take for granted.

Access to clean water is not just a human rights issue. It’s an environmental issue. An animal welfare issue. A sustainability issue. Water is a global issue, and it affects all of us."
