Such wonderful news! I recently received this article via my friend Dina Tax, who is a sophomore geology major here at University of South Carolina. It’s difficult for such a large city to commit to a project this large, but it feels so good to know people are becoming more environmentally conscious about our planet. Americans throw away an astonishing 2.5 MILLION plastic bottles every hour! San Fran’s efforts may seem small in the scheme of things, but I’m positive there will be plenty of other cities following in their footsteps. Go west coast!
