Bring back plastic water bottle ban in national parks

This petition had 95 supporters

In August of 2017 the Trump administration repealed a National Park Service policy that encouraged national parks to ban the sale of bottled water. 23 national parks will resume selling water bottles that take at least 1,000 years to decompose, leaking harmful chemicals into the soil and the nature surrounding it. Approximately 2 million tons of these plastic bottles pollute our landscape and fill our landfills with deprecating waste. The National Parks Service ought to be encouraged to ban the sale of these pollutants  in order to preserve our Earth as well as the beautiful landscapes they protect. Furthermore, this policy marks another worrisome decision by the Trump administration in a trend against conservation and sustainability. Reversing this decision will mark a small step towards reversing this trend and towards a sustainable future.
