Bundanoon in New South Wales has become the first town in Australia to officially ban the sale of bottled water.

Bottles of water have been removed from shop shelves and replaced by reusable plastic bottles. A number of water stations have been installed.

The ABC reports that more than 350 residents voted in July to support the ban, which took effect on Saturday.
