The drink at the top of menus in Metro Vancouver this fall might be tap water, reports Darah Hansen in the Vancouver Sun. The move is an attempt by the system of regional British Columbia governments to increase the amount of people drinking tap water as opposed to bottled or sparkling, thereby decreasing costs and reducing the number of plastic bottles that end up in landfills every year. Similar programs are appearing around the world in an attempt to make drinking tap water more socially acceptable.
