Do you know that one in five Canadians drink all of their water from throw-away plastic bottles? And do you know that despite the determined efforts to recycle these bottles most of them end up in landfills or are discarded into the environment? To address this problem, a group of concerned citizens in Ottawa has banded together to form the Ottawa Water Study/Action Group (OWSAG).
Eric Schiller is a founding member of OWSAG and a retired University of Ottawa civil engineering professor.
