Now-canceled National Park 'bottle ban' was effective

The Trump administration recently rescinded a 2011 ban on the sale of disposable water bottles in National Parks. The administration sided with the International Bottled Water Association, a lobby for the bottled water industry. According to an Interior Department report based on data from 23 participating National Park Service sites, the six-year ban proved effective in many ways, including saving between 73,624 to 111,743 pounds of plastic, as well as from 93 to 141 million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent greenhouse gases.
