Trump wants more plastic waste in US parks

No, this is not from The Onion; Trump has reportedly caved to the bottled water industry by lifting an Obama-era ban on bottled water sales in national parks which had...
...saved up to 111,743 pounds of plastic, 141 million tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gases and 3.4 billion British thermal units of energy, the NPS [National Park Service] report estimated, based on the 23 Park Service units that submitted data.

No word yet about whether park goers will get discounted admissions if they bring in, empty and leave behind jugs of weed-killer and insecticides.
