Popular Edinburgh restaurant Vittoria faced a dilemma about whether or not to keep serving expensive and environmentally questionable bottle Italian water to its diners.
As owner Tony Crolla wrestled with the ethical dimensions of the issue he had a lightbulb moment – let the customers decide.
To open the debate beyond regular diners at the two branches of Vittoria in the Scottish capital, Tony asked Scottish public relations experts Holryood Partnership to help organise and promote a vote.
