with 🎙️ George McGraw - CEO & Founder of DigDeep
💧 DigDeep is a human rights nonprofit serving the 2.2 million+ Americans without the sinks, bathtubs, or toilets that the rest of the US takes for granted.
What we covered:
🤯 How 2.2 million Americans don't have access to water and wastewater services at home and how these places affected by the Water Gap could be at a 10-minute drive of your home
🍀 How investing in water offers an insane return on investment of five dollars for one!
😊 How access to water solves a wide array of problems, starting with undervalued ones like type two diabetes
🌱 How DigDeep came to existence, what it aims to solve and how it intends to have an impact on these million lives
🚰 How closing the gap doesn't stop at the people that desperately miss WASH services but also involves guaranteeing better tap water quality to 44 million Americans
🤝 How we will need to think a bit laterally and change our approach to closing the water gap - as traditional approaches have failed for decades
💸 How closing the water gap is before all a wrong pocket problem, what it involves, and how we can tackle this
🥛 How looking at the water challenge, you can see whether a half-full or a half-empty glass (pun unintended)
🏫 When DigDeep envisions achieving its mission and why seeing them disappear would be awesome news for all the right reasons
🚱 How solving up to the nitty gritty details will build a better world, one plumbing line at a time
✈️ The limits of central governments, finding the right catchphrase, getting inspired by the Airline Industry, One Water, Joining the movement, leveraging federal investment... and much more!
