PROMOTING THE DRINKING OF DRINKING WATER FROM THE TAP
Slovenia is one of those countries where every resident has the right to drinking water and at the same time it is also one of those countries that has drinking water available. Water sources are regularly monitored, which enables safe drinking of tap water. Therefore, in the light of sustainable development, responsible behavior and conservation of natural resources, you use tap water in your work and abandon the use of pre-packaged water in bottles. Offer drinking water from the tap as a regular form of offer to guests and tourists, when organizing events, business meetings and, of course, also among employees within your organization (Slovenia info, 2022).
