Water bottles in School

Today’s 365 photo is of some of the pupil’s water bottles at school. I really like the fact that the primary school I work in realises the importance of stating hydrated. It improves concentration and health among many other things. What I like less is how the school uses plastic bottles for the pupils. Each class gets a set of disposable bottles, keeping them for a term and refilling daily. Refilling them is admirable but surely a more environmentally friendly thing to do would be to use plastic cups?

Ideally a water bottle that lasted for years would be perfect but sadly that’s not cost effective for a school (Sigg do a great range for kids).
