A Torontobased website has launched a campaign to persuade restaurant diners to choose tap over bottled water.

Executive Editor of www.xyyz.ca Russell Smith said, "We cater to urban guys who eat out a lot. Before they order that expensive bottle of exotic spring water we want them to think of the tonnes of waste, not only from the plastic bottles going into landfi lls but from the carbon expended to get that water to their table."

In a survey, the website found 85 per cent of its members questioned feel bottled water in restaurants is overpriced, 57 per cent thought it was bad for the environment and 39 per cent didn't.
