Hawaii looking to ban plastic water bottles starting in 2024

A great start, but this ban needs to find it's way to the mainland U.S. to really have an impact. Or, realistically, California to drive the discussion with manufacturers across the United States.

Civil Beat reports:

If passed, the bill would ban the sale of plastic water bottles smaller than 2 liters starting Jan. 1, leaving an exception for bottled water used in emergency and public health situations.

This is a completely sensible ban with appropriate carve-outs for emergencies & public health situations.
