According to Supervisor Katy Tang, San Francisco alone, uses about a million straws each day. With that being said, small plastic foodware makes up about 67 percent of street litter that goes into the Bay.
SF would ultimately like to ban plastic straws and other plastic foodware.
Bay Area cities that have recently approved a ban or limit on plastic straws include Alameda, Oakland and Berkeley. Additionally, Santa Cruz, Davis, San Luis Obispo, Malibu, Seattle, Miami Beach and Fort Meyers, Florida, have also taken similar measures.
If approved, the ordinance would go into effect on July 1, 2019.
