It is a matter of fact that the world has an increased threat of water crises along with an alarming threat of sanitation as well. These days we can see that cleanliness is rare in most of the places around us and the pollution is getting worse with time. Moreover, the reservoirs of clean water are also getting distinct either because of the pollution or because of the waste of excess of water. Therefore there is a great need to save water and have sanitation programs on a large basis to save the world and humanity.
