Did you know it was World Water Day... thought not.

In another effort (Spanish effort here) to call attention to World Water Day, Duval Guillaume, working for Green Belgium, has created a campaign which, today, will affix stickers to the drains of bathroom sinks in Mexican and Belgian cinemas, pubs, restaurants, universities, transit stations and anywhere else there's a sink. The message say, "It takes you one second to get drinking water. He has to walk 20 miles."

Calling attention to World Water Day, Intermon Oxfam placed king size straws in the the manholes of Madrid, Barcelona and Zaragoza with the message "would you drink from this water? Thousand of people haven't got other choice." The work was done by CP Proximity Live Spain. See more images here.

Why are there no U.S.-based efforts for this cause? Do we even know it's World Water Day today?

We don't need to support this effort in the US; we're busy thawing Greenland so we'll all have plenty of water.
