another check and check for SF.

24 Jun

The mayor of San Francisco has been making interesting moves in the fight for environmental sustainability, as he tries to make his city stand out from the rest. A few months ago, he announced a ban on plastic bags at SF grocery and drug stores. Now, he is banning the sale of plastic water bottles in the golden West coast city.

Not only does it take about 40 million gallons of oil to make the plastic bottles, but more than a billion water bottles make it to the state’s landfills per year. The city’s state and local offices will start dispensing municpal tap water in July.

Now all SF needs is public restrooms that you don’t have to pay to use.
