San Francisco Bans Sale of Plastic Water Bottles

san francisco

Plastic pollution is one of the greatest problems facing our environment today. Apparently there's enough plastic discarded each year to circle the Globe 4 times with most of this only being used once before being thrown away.

Many national parks and universities in the United States already have a complete ban on the sale of plastic water bottles.

In a monumental move, San Francisco has become the first city in America to ban the sale of plastic water bottles - The plastic bottle industry makes billions of dollars every year and this is taking its toll on the environment.

 

As a result, San Francisco’s local government is attempting to build a global movement to reduce the huge amount of waste material accumulation. Over the next four years there will be a phased ban on the sales of plastic water bottles that hold 21 ounces or less in public spaces. There will be a waiver in place if an adequate alternative water source is not available.

We think this is a great move here at Expert Skip Hire and will be interested to see if any cities here in the UK follow suit.
