While it won’t happen overnight, it’s an important step. The order essentially reverses a 2017 Trump administration policy that prevented national parks from banning plastic water bottle sales.

The Interior Department will phase out sales of plastic water bottles and other single-use products at national parks and on other public lands over the next decade, targeting a major source of U.S. pollution.

An order issued by Interior Secretary Deb Haaland calls for the department to reduce the purchase, sale, and distribution of single-use plastic products and packaging on 480 million acres of federally managed lands, with a goal of phasing out the products by 2032.
