Written answers (Question to Children)

My Department has spent approximately €8,600 on bottled water and water coolers so far in 2019. This includes both individual bottled water and water coolers. Just over €1,000 was spent on individual bottles, i.e. 330 ml or 500 ml, and €7,600 on water coolers, i.e. 19 litre drums.

My Department has spent €71 on the purchase of disposable coffee cups so far in 2019 which are all fully compostable.
