San Francisco, Ca. — Bottled water is getting closer to being banned in San Francisco.
The environmentally “conscious” City by the Bay is moving closer to banning sales of the plastic water bottles at events held on city property. Legislators there unanimously voted to end the sale and distribution of plastic bottled water on municipal property, bringing the city nearer to its goal of diverting all its waste from landfill or incineration by 2020.
It isn’t just San Francisco that is becoming more environmentally friendly, there are six states and at least 140 other American cities, such as Seattle, that have also officially stopped buying bottled water with municipal money. San Francisco, though, is the first major city to prohibit vendors from selling it on their property.
