San Francisco International Airport bans the sale of single-use plastic bottles, asking passengers to buy refillable bottles if they do not bring their own supplies, US media reported on Friday.

The new rules go into effect Aug. 20, the San Francisco Chronicle reported, and part of a five-year plan to reduce landfill waste, carbon emission and total energy use to zero.

“We are the first airport to implement this change,” said airport spokesman Doug Yakel.

The ban applies to all restaurants, cafes and vending machines, though not to airports that use the airport.

It excludes flavored water brands.

Refined water is provided free of charge at 100 hydration stations, where passengers can fill glass or metal bottles.

The airport portrays it as an industry leader in sustainability, installing solar panels and directing all tenants to use composite food supplies including drinkers and utensils.

Airports in Dubai and India have announced similar bans but have not fully enforced it.
