The San Francisco Port Commission has adopted a new "zero waste policy" for events that would attract more than 5,000 people, and there's rumors that the "policy was initiated out of concern America's Cup organizers would skirt their pledge to be sustainable," reports SFGate. It means no single-use plastic water bottles; plastic bags or utensils that aren't compostable; and the "intentional release of balloons," all of which are feared to end up in the bay. Jill Savery, head of sustainability for the America's Cup, said the policy is in line with what the event has already planned. [SFGate]
