    Water and the environment

    Plastic waste from disposable bottles constitutes a threat to our environment. Most European regions enjoy good access to high quality drinking water, meaning that single use plastic bottles can be replaced with tap water and reusable bottles.

    Drinking tap water in school reduces single use plastic bottle waste and raises awareness of the quality of tap water.

Water is vital. Without water, there is no life.

Water consumption is necessary for maintaining optimal health and brain function. People meet their fluid needs by drinking when thirsty, but especially in schools where there is often a lot going on, pupils may sometimes forget to drink even when they feel thirsty.

This is where the Erasmus+ project Waterschools project comes in. This project encourages and supports pupils to drink healthy tap water in their everyday life at school.
