Concessions at San Francisco Airport to stop selling plastic bottled water

LinkedIn +

San Francisco International Airport (SFO), California, has announced that shops, eateries and airline lounges will no longer provide or sell plastic bottled water from August 20, 2019.

Announced on the airport’s social media channels, SFO has advised passengers to bring their own reusable bottles, which can be refilled at more than 100 hydration stations and drinking fountains throughout the airport.

The bottled water initiative is part of SFO’s Zero Waste Concessions Program, a key component of its Zero Waste Plan, which aims to address one of the major sources of waste generated at the airport. SFO’s goal is to reduce single-use disposable plastics by transitioning to reusable, compostable and recyclable alternatives at SFO shops, eateries, and airline lounges.
