You Can't Buy a Single-Serve Plastic Bottle of Water in Concord Massachusetts

Concord is the first town in the nation where the sale of plastic water bottles is prohibited.


A new year brings a controversial new law into effect in Concord: no one can sell single-serving plastic water bottles.
"I think Concord, you know, they have a good point about the plastic. I really do and I think other towns might follow," one woman said.
The new law is the talk of the town.

Supporters say it will force people to use tap water and reduce the number of plastic bottles in landfills.

Some businesses have been against it from the beginning. They've been busy trying to clear their shelves of the bottles.
"Where I work we sell bottled water and we just bought like 20 more cases so it's just going to be kind of sitting there. We’re going to have to get rid of it," said Jenny Fioretti.
