Be the Change - Reduce Single-Use Plastic Consumption with Policy

We will achieve our mission to eliminate the need for bottled water with the help of innovation, education, and policy.

To help drive change we’ve prepared a framework for policymakers, sustainability managers, impact businesses, and NGOs. This framework provides initiatives that are proven to work including case studies and impact.

Success Story

San Francisco

In 2014, San Francisco took a groundbreaking step by enacting a policy that prohibited the sale and distribution of single-use plastic water bottles on city-owned properties. The ban targeted bottles with a capacity of 21 ounces or less, encouraging the adoption of reusable alternatives and the installation of water refill stations in public spaces.

The city’s proactive approach included extensive awareness campaigns to educate residents, tourists, and businesses about the impending ban. Additionally, the city provided alternatives to plastic bottled water, including installing more water fountains. These efforts paved the way for successful implementation and widespread public understanding of the policy’s objectives.

The ban yielded tangible results over the years. In the city’s airport alone, the ban has resulted in an abrupt halt to the 4 million plastic water bottles that were sold each year. Metrics indicate a substantial reduction in plastic water bottles found in landfills, parks, and streets, underlining its effectiveness in tackling plastic waste. The installation of water refill stations further boosted the use of reusable bottles, aligning with the policy’s eco-friendly aims.

Beyond the numbers, the ban triggered a shift in consumer behavior. People increasingly embraced reusable water bottles and engaged in conversations about sustainability. The policy’s success not only contributed to a greener city but also showcased the potential for meaningful change through targeted policy measures.

San Francisco’s 2014 plastic water bottle ban stands as a testament to the power of forward-thinking policies in driving positive environmental impact and fostering a culture of sustainability.
