Feb. 25, 2010 – Students at the University of Ottawa are looking to "back the tap" by going without bottled water for at least one day.

Advertisment

The school is one of more than 20 Ontario universities hoping to
make March 11 "Bottled Water Free Day." It's a national campaign aimed
at drawing awareness about the environmental and economic impact of
plastic water bottles.

The University of Ottawa's student-run store will not be selling
bottled war that day, and the Chartwells on-campus dining service has
agreed to follow suit.

The vending machines, however, will have to remain plugged in,
according to Michele Lamarche, the student union's vice-president of
student affairs. | READ MORE
