Unscramble the Blue Letters

famrres are already finding ingenious ways to reduce their impact, like using siaepcl irrigation techniques to grow “more crop per drop”, and breeding new cpros that are less thirsty. Other industries are following suit, antoidpg production processes that reuse and recycle water. On a paornsel level, reducing food waste is the first step to reducing wtear use, since one-third of the food that leaves farms is currently wasted or thrown away. You might also want to consider eating less water-intensive foods like shelled nuts and red meat. Adopting a vaaegeitrn lifestyle could reduce up to one third of your water footprint. Our planet may never run out of water, but it doesn’t have to for individuals to go thirsty. Solving this local prbelom requires a global solution, and small day-to-day decisions can affect reservoirs around the world.

Original Text

Farmers are already finding ingenious ways to reduce their impact, like using special irrigation techniques to grow “more crop per drop”, and breeding new crops that are less thirsty. Other industries are following suit, adopting production processes that reuse and recycle water. On a personal level, reducing food waste is the first step to reducing water use, since one-third of the food that leaves farms is currently wasted or thrown away. You might also want to consider eating less water-intensive foods like shelled nuts and red meat. Adopting a vegetarian lifestyle could reduce up to one third of your water footprint. Our planet may never run out of water, but it doesn’t have to for individuals to go thirsty. Solving this local problem requires a global solution, and small day-to-day decisions can affect reservoirs around the world.
