Intermarché raises awareness about saving water

Grupo Os Mosqueteiros, which owns the Intermarché supermarket chain, has launched a contest for primary school students to come up with creative tips and advice on how to save water.

Entitled ‘Vamos poupar água com o Pafi’, the initiative is being carried out at 2,000 schools throughout Portugal. The goal is to show schoolchildren the importance of conserving water.

Schools with the best works will be awarded tablets and vouchers to purchase school equipment at Intermarché supermarkets. There will also be a special party with the initiative’s mascot, Pafi, for the overall winning school.

Said the group’s João Magalhães, “the contest is a way of teaching youngsters about the importance of preserving water resources”.

Any school in Portugal is invited to present their works by May 27.
