Plastic Bottled Water: Banned in San Francisco

Ban the Bottle

San Francisco, CA has just joined Concord, MA in banning the sale of single-use plastic bottled water. San Francisco’s ban was spearheaded by the Think Outside the Bottle Campaign, who successfully pressured city Board of Supervisors into adopting the ban.

For the moment, the San Francisco ban only applies to sales that occur on city property, however, according to Board of Supervisors President David Chiu, more restrictions may follow in the future. Chiu stated last week that: “If we can do this on public property and folks understand that this is absolutely doable, then we can look at next steps.”

Bottled Water Hurts Both the Planet and your Wallet

einstein

If Albert Einstein were alive today, there are many things about our 21st century society that would confuse him. Our collective fascination with selfies, check-out lines, and the Kardashians would confuse even a great mind like Einstein. However, if you were to explain to Einstein that Americans spend billions of dollars a year on water transported over long distances in small, plastic bottles, he would think our society was collectively insane. 

Suzanne Havala Hobbs, an associate professor of Health Policy and Management at UNC Chapel-Hill, recently wrote about why we should all ditch bottled water. The reasons are simple: One, its horrible for the environment. Most bottled water comes in small, plastic bottles that end up in landfills. As well, the environmental cost of transporting bottled water over long distances is enormous.

The second reason is that by buying bottled water, you’re hurting your wallet. Spending a dollar or more on bottled of water on a daily basis gets expensive fast. You can save money by getting a reusable water bottle and ditching the plastic.

Imagine if we all used a reusable water bottle: Our wallets would be thicker, the environment would be better off, and Einstein’s hair wouldn’t be raised so high. A win-win all around!
