Water Beats Cola

Can't Beat Water

Can’t Beat Water

Pupils in Radom schools no longer prefer fizzy drinks thank to the installation of drinking fountains which provide young people with fresh, clean tap water. The project, sponsored by the EU, which cost more than PLN 70,000 has been a hit with kids. According to Karol Semik, deputy mayor of Radom, interest in the undertaking is growing as representatives of local government continue to ask about the installation of drinking fountains in schools. Most importantly, however, is the fact that pupils are not forced to drink water but happily do so, much to their parents’ great joy, who eagerly supported the initiative. The drinking fountains were first installed in easily accessible places in 10 schools, after which school children began switching from sugar-filled fizzy drinks to water. Consequently, local authorities in Radom decided to install fountains in every primary, middle and high school and other in institutions which were interested in the project. In effect, the city of Radom has taken the first step to being one of Poland’s healthiest cities.
