Ban Plastic Bottles

Ban the sale of drinking water, soft drinks and beverages in disposable plastic bottles.

Why is this important?

Plastic bottles make ugly, long lasting rubbish. Some make it into our landfills, but the rest are trashing our roadsides, and endangering our wildlife. Only a very few are ever recycled and the petroleum they're made from could be put to better uses.

Missourians can live without plastic bottles, but the state's natural beauty is too high a price to pay for "convenience".
