Ah, California, the Fool’s Golden State, where plastic straws are considered a greater threat than plague rats, brings us the next chapters in the war against synthetic carbon-based polymers: Los Angeles City Council has followed San Fransisco in voting to ban single use plastic water bottles.
“The City Council of Los Angeles voted to begin the process of a large-scale ban of plastic water bottles on city property Wednesday night at the Los Angeles City Hall.
“The City Council will have different departments and groups in the city come up with plans on how to phase out single-use bottles from all city-owned buildings and all city events. The addition of more water sources and bottle filling stations, in addition to the 200 currently being built within the city, will also be reviewed.
“As the ban will be in place at all city owned facilities, the ban would include major centers of activity such as Los Angeles International Airport, the LA Coliseum, and Union Station.”
