Today I didn’t have much time for lunch, so I ran to Los Tacos Cafe at Cambie and Hastings Street in Vancouver. They have affordable and tasty tacos, as well as other Mexican food such as tortas and quesadillas.
I can also recommend their colourful drinks, which come in glass bottles. As I was paying for my drink (a refreshing hibiscus tea), the server said: “We like to re-use our bottles, so please try to bring it back when you are done.” So I stopped by on my way home from work to return the drink container. This was a welcome (and admittedly shocking) change from the one-use and recycle or throwaway norm!
Of course, we can’t just wait for the restaurants to implement all of the environmentally responsible initiatives. Patrons can also bring their own re-usable containers
