Montreal's Vanier College First School To Ban Plastic Water Bottles
Should the whole city do the same?
Vanier College in Saint-Laurent has taken a firm stance against the environmental hazards caused by disposable water bottles; the sale of plastic water bottles has been completely banned on the CEGEP's campus.
Plastic water bottles are a well-known source of pollution and waste, and Vanier College aims to aid the environment in a way "that's not difficult to do," Vanier's Student Association President told CTV News.
Easy accomplished and a major boon to the environment, maybe Montreal at-large should follow suit andon plastic water bottles.
To make sure water is still readily available to all students, Vanier is in the process of upgrading their water fountains and making permanent/re-usable containers available on campus.
Should all of Montreal ban plastic water bottles?
