Concord, Massachusetts, Bans Plastic Bottles
In our Fall 2012 issue, our intrepid reporter Katherine Ludwig wrote about trying to get plastic out of her life.
Given what we learned from her about plastic—that it never breaks completely down, that sea mammals mistake it for plankton and consume it until it suffocates them from within, that it covers 40 percent of the ocean’s surface, according to the Center for Biological Diversity—we were inspired by this story on the Huffington Post about Concord, Massachusetts, where a law went into effect on January 1 banning the sale of water in single-serving plastic bottles. Yay, Concord!
Wouldn’t it be cool if Ithaca did this?
