San Francisco Airport first to go plastic bottle free

San Francisco International Airport in California is living up to a promise it made in 2014 that the airport will cease to sell water in plastic bottles as part of its environmentally friendly Zero Waste Plan. From August no restaurant, shop or airline lounge will be permitted to sell passengers or staff any plastic bottled water. Water will still, of course, be offered to customers and staff but it will be available in more environmentally friendly single and multi-use aluminium and glass containers.

San Francisco International Airport has also installed around 100 hydration stations and drinking fountains across the airport site to encourage people to refill their own reusable and refillable bottles.

The management at the airport have extended their ban on plastics to also include all food and beverages and in future all such products will be served in containers that have been certified as conforming to compostable rules established by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI).

The initiative by San Francisco International Airport is part of a wider reaching city wide one called the Plastic, Litter, and Toxics Reductions Law established to increase public awareness and adherence to plastics recycling.
