San Francisco Bans Bottled Water Sales!
“San Francisco is 49 square miles surrounded by reality”.
In a noble, if somewhat puzzling effort, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors has voted unanimously to ban the sale of single-use bottled water smaller than 21 ounces from city property and events. This ban also prohibits the sale of same by food trucks regulated by the city. The city already has banned the use of plastic bags for sacking customer purchases.
It is the hope of city officials that the banning of these plastic water bottles will induce a new mindset toward pollution reduction while helping to achieve the city’s goal to cut landfill waste down to zero by 2020.
