We wanted to give something back to our community and what better way is there than providing schools with a free water solution that can be enjoyed by both staff and pupils,”
Gloucestershire UK (PRWEB) November 19, 2010
Gloucestershire Media’s winner of Small Business of the Year award 2010 http://www.watercoolersdirect.com, continues to drive its commitment to providing ‘green’ drinking water by offering free plumbed in water coolers to schools throughout the county.
Research shows that children aren’t drinking enough water throughout the school day which is affecting their concentration levels and ability to learn. By simply drinking more water, irritability and tiredness, often associated with dehydration in children, can be significantly reduced.
Water Coolers Direct is spear heading a campaign to provide all Gloucestershire school children with readily available fresh, filtered water ‘on tap’. By recycling old models through a reconditioning programme, the company is donating refurbished water coolers to schools in the county that are plumbed directly into the water mains eradicating the need for large plastic bottles. Not only is this an environmental saving, head teachers and bursars can benefit from a saving of around 90% of running costs of a bottled water cooler and there’s no need for bottle deliveries or the need to lift heavy bottles.
“We wanted to give something back to our community and what better way is there than providing schools with a free water solution that can be enjoyed by both staff and pupils,” said Fred Cairns Palmer, managing director at Water Coolers Direct. “With the current financial cuts that schools are facing, this is an ideal time to be lending a helping hand to local schools and it allows us to not be wasteful and use our reconditioned stock in a positive way.”
To benefit from this offer schools should contact Gloucester based Water Coolers Direct on 0800 7311 491 or visit http://www.watercoolersdirect.com, while stocks last.
Water Coolers Direct (WCD) is a UK based dotcom surrounded by competitors who focus on lucrative rental contracts. The company prides itself in leading what it calls "the Water Coolers Direct drinking revolution" where customers have effectively said ‘no’ to onerous drinking water contracts by purchasing their machines outright. Starting from a small loft in Dursley, Gloucestershire in 2004, today WCD operates from new office and warehouse premises on the prestigious Gloucester Business Park. Winners of Gloucestershire Media’s Small Business of the Year award 2010, WaterCoolersDirect has just sold its 12,000th water cooler.
