Single use water bottles banned in San Francisco Airport

Single use water bottles banned in San Francisco Airport

Reusable water bottles it is for back to school. 👍

Last year at St. Joseph's CBS, the Parents' Council covered the cost of installing a water fountain with good quality drinking water for the students to refill their reusable water bottles.

San Francisco International Airport is banning the sale of single-use plastic water bottles.

The new rule comes into effect on 20 August, and is part of a five-year plan to lower landfill waste, net carbon emissions and net energy use to zero.

"We're the first airport that we're aware of to implement this change," airport spokesman Doug Yakel told the San Francisco Chronicle.

"We're on the leading edge for the industry, and we want to push the boundaries of sustainability initiatives," he said.

The ban will apply to all restaurants, cafés and vending machines, though not to planes using the airport.

It exempts brands of flavoured water.

Filtered water is provided for free at 100 "hydration stations," where flyers can top up reusable bottles.
