Hong Kong government bans the sale of plastic water bottles at its venues

From February 2018, vending machines at government sports and leisure facilities in Hong Kong have stopped carrying small, plastic water bottles.

As part of a wider push to reduce waste among government workers and leading on from internal guidelines issued in 2012, the Hong Kong government have also moved to install 2,700 new drinking fountains at their venues, with more on the way.

Similarly, they have also stopped providing bottled water during events and meetings, across all government departments, providing refillable containers instead. More at The Standard.
