VIDEO: San Francisco Says No to Bottled Water

In the spring of 2014, San Francisco passed an ordinance to prohibit the sale and distribution of single-use plastic water bottles on public property—becoming the first major U.S. city to enact such a ban.

In this video by the Center for a New American Dream, you'll meet the San Francisco city leaders and community organizers who helped make the ordinance a reality.

Watch the video to hear how the ordinance came to pass, how it will be implemented, and how this can serve as a model to reduce plastic pollution in cities everywhere.
