The Burlington Post reported yesterday that, "Burlington may join a growing list of municipalities that have banned the sale of bottled water at city buildings. In a bid to lead by example in protecting the environment, politicians will tonight (Wednesday) debate a city staff recommendation to eliminate the sale of bottled water in city facilities."
Trade campaigner Stuart Trew reports this morning that he "spoke to Burlington Green at their March 12 event where the mayor and two councillors were present. Council last night unanimously endorsed removing bottles from city buildings..."
The unanimous vote by councillors last night to end bottled water sales on city properties means that a follow-up report will be written on the "key financial, environmental and community implications of such a program..." before a final vote on this issue.
