It is for the 7th year in a row that Korpi Natural and Mineral water organized the water-caring Festival. The celebration took place at its factory, situated at the Akarnanian mountains (Monastiraki, Vonitsa), on Friday, March 18, in the context of the celebration of International Water Day (22 of March). During this year’s festival 100 children from nearby schools participated. Afterwards, they enjoyed a guided tour at the factory, as well as other educational and entertaining activities.
The children learned how important and necessary water is for the survival of every creature on the planet. They realized that water is very precious because, even if it covers the biggest part of our body and of our planet, in reality we can use only a small amount of it. Teachers and Nestlé employees helped throughout the activities which were introduced by Project Wet Foundation, a Non Governmental Organization that aims at helping children realize the importance of water. Project Wet Foundation cooperates with other organizations that work on water issues, as well as with USA’s Peace Corps, UNESCO, International Union of Water resources, etc. Nestlé Waters is one of its main members since 1992.
