It’s hard to deny how big a problem single-use plastic waste has become. Businesses in our community are helping address the issue by offering tap water to anyone who drops in asking to refill their water bottle.
Peter Abraham, owner of the Sir John A. MacDonald Restaurant and Pub on Elgin Street, happily signed on to the program recently. Those needing a refill of their reusable water bottle will know by the blueW sticker on the the front window that they're welcome to come in for some high-quality Ottawa tap water.
