Flower Power

As CBC reported on March 23, 2017, Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC will no longer sell bottled water.

The initiative was passed this week in honour of World Water Day, and was the brainchild of food services director Bob Parotta. The ban will affect the sale of 80,000 plastic bottles a year, but it will also save tourists from an overpriced purchase—bottles used to sell at $3.95 a pop.
