Del Mar could join dozens of other California cities in banning plastic bags.
The City Council on Tuesday will consider the idea.
According to the staff report, the city’s Sustainability Advisory Board “has been very interested in recommending that the City of Del Mar implement an ordinance to ban the use of plastic bags by retail establishments including restaurants and the Farmers Market.”
Two other cities, Solana Beach and Encinitas, have banned plastic bags.
California lawmakers approved of a plastic bag ban in 2014 but the ban is now the target of a referendum vote in November 2016.
