    Ok, someways to keep polutants away from water:

    1. Improve liquid waste handle. The sink should not be a trash tube. Always you see liquid waste, try to use a strainer, in order to keep the solids away from liquids.
    2. If its posible, try to remove food from dishes and pots before washing them, in order to reduce the amount of suspended solids; you can also boil liquid waste, in order to turn it to a solid state.
    3. Reuse, don't use plastic in any form as posible.
    4. You should water your soil with vegetable waste water. Some changes in your diet may help to keep water clean (think abut it).
    5. In the future, toilets should be waterless.
    6. Make your own search about the amount of water used for every product we use. For example, leather industry polutes water as well as gold mining. I guess, many solutions will come up .
    7. Recycle, this is crucial in 6.

    My folks were early supporters of the cleanup efforts of the Hudson River when it had become polluted. It had gotten so bad that you could not longer eat from it. They joined a group called the Clearwater which had a schooner (I was aboard as a young teen) used for drawing attention to and teaching about the river.

    I think they're still around. Lemme google......

    Yep. Here ya go. Maybe some ideas there for you...
    Clearwater was founded by Pete Seeger, legendary musician, singer, songwriter, folklorist, activist, environmentalist, and peace advocate, and one of the most influential people of the twentieth century. In 1966, in despair over the pollution of his beloved Hudson River, Seeger announced plans to “build a boat to save the river.” At the time, the Hudson was rank with raw sewage, toxic chemicals and oil pollution; fish had disappeared over many miles of its length. Seeger, along with many other concerned individuals, believed a majestic replica of the sloops that sailed the Hudson in the 18th and 19th centuries would bring people to the river where they could experience its beauty and be moved to preserve it. Inspired by that vision, the organization began with the launch of the sloop Clearwater in 1969 —a majestic 106-foot long replica vessel.

    The sloop Clearwater is recognized as America’s Environmental Flagship and is among the first vessels in the United States to conduct science-based environmental education aboard a sailing ship, creating the template for environmental education programs around the world. More than half a million people have experienced their first real look at the Hudson River estuary’s ecosystem aboard Clearwater. In 2004, the sloop Clearwater was named to the National Register of Historic Places for its groundbreaking role in the environmental movement.
