My name is Lilah and I am 9 years old. Last year, I travelled to Europe with my family and in one city, I saw a big bank of water taps. At these taps, people were coming to fill up everything from little bottles to drink from to big bottles to store water in. Thirsty dogs were coming and drinking out of the trough at the bottom that held the left over water. Men and ladies from long exhausting bike rides and runs were coming to quench their thirst.I would like to bring this into Auckland for these reasons:
- It would help our community to be more healthy because less fortunate people could drink water instead of buying unhealthy and sugary drinks (which at the moment are really cheap).
- It will allow people to refill plastic bottles instead of them going to landfill or the ocean.
- It would help schools that want to be Water-Only schools because the children will have the chance to easily drink water outside of school and then it will become a good habit.
