City of San Francisco bans sale of plastic water bottles on public property
Last week San Francisco voted unanimously to ban sales of plastic water bottles on city property indoor or outdoor, which will impact park vendors, food truck operators, street fairs and places like the Moscone Center convention facility. Alternate sources of water such as hydration stations and water fountains will be available.
San Francisco’s ban is similar to bans in 14 national parks, a number of universities and Concord, Mass (USA).
Americans use 50 billion plastic water bottles a year and just 23% of those are recycled.
