Who does Howard Plastics sell water bottles to?

Howard Plastics provides water bottles to schools and nurseries.  The products sold become the property and equipment of the school or nursery and are used by the children of the school or nursery to stay hydrated, therefore enabling school and nurseries to meet government requirements relating to child hydration.  All products sold by Howard Plastics are solely used by the school or nursery to satisfy such requirements and allow for immediate identification (for hygiene and ownership purposes) between those bottles owned by the school or nursery and those purchased personally by the individual child or the child’s parent(s). Howard Plastics does not supply to the Promotional or Retails markets. Non school based enquiries will be forwarded to the relevant parties.
