Don't throw away that cup!
So many of us have done it: bought a drink in a plastic cup or bottle at an event, drained it and gotten another cup or bottle. San Francisco wants this habit to end. The city is prodding people toward more reusable food- and drink-ware, as part of an effort to slash waste and green the economy. This weekend’s Nihonmachi Street Fair, held annually in Japantown, is selling reusable pint cups for the first time in its 46-year history. In two weeks, San Francisco International Airport will outlaw the sale of plastic bottles of plain water.
