The first action, a filtered water taste test, will take place at IPVC schools during the next week.
For now, there is normal and cold filtered water. Other options will be available soon, such as sparkling and flavored water. Each 0.70 l filling of high-quality filtered water costs €0.20.
The bottle has an RFID tag that can be associated with the institutional card, following the steps indicated at the refill station.
The #RefillH2O will later be disseminated to 38,000 students from 20 primary and secondary schools in Alto Minho, where reusable bottles will be distributed. If implemented in all schools in the region, it will make it possible to remove more than 10,000 tons of single-use plastic from the oceans.
