The Unbottle Map » Jurisdictions and institutions that have implemented, or are considering, bottled water bans.
Across the country, concerned citizens are visiting their municipal councils and local school boards to say that bottled water is an unnecessary drain on the environment and on budgets.
Canada has one of the best drinking water systems in the world, but the bottled water industry has worked hard to undermine our faith in public water. The industry sells water – what should be a shared public resource – for huge profits. Producing and transporting bottled water requires large amounts of fossil fuels, and plastic water bottles continue to end up by the millions in local landfills. We are not immune to the growing threats of water scarcity in Canada. Twenty per cent of Canadian municipalities have faced shortages in recent years. Bottled water production places huge stresses on increasingly scarce water resources.
