The U.S. National parks will start selling bottled water again after a six-year ban against the practice. It was 23 out of 417 parks that took part in the ban. Now popular spots such as the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, and Mount Rushmore will offer them once again.
Michael T. Reynolds, the organization’s acting national director, released a statement about the move.
“While we will continue to encourage the use of free water bottle filling stations as appropriate, ultimately it should be up to our visitors to decide how best to keep themselves and their families hydrated during a visit to a national park.”
The International Bottled Water Association has been actively trying to overturn the ban for years. They called the plan “seriously flawed.”
