Ban plastic bags to cut down in litter

If I were mayor of Miami Beach, I would impose “no plastic straws” and “no plastic bags” policies in shops, restaurants and bars. Bars and restaurants could only offer stirring straws made out of biodegradable material, and restaurants offering takeout would receive from the city low cost reusable bags that the clients could purchase for less than $1 each to offset the cost to the business.
