Grants of between £300 and £3,000 are available to Schools, Colleges and Universities for projects that significantly reduce their reliance on single-use plastics and plastic waste.
The Tap Water Awards aim to support projects that develop new solutions to replace pre-existing systems that rely on plastic and promote the use of tap water. Grants are available to support educational establishments install mains fed drinking water machines and using reusable bottles. The Awards will however not pay for activities or services that schools have a statutory responsibility to provide.
Applications can be submitted at any time.
Educational establishments wishing to apply are strongly advised to contact tapwater.org before applying.
