A New York city council member announced on Wednesday his plan to ban plastic straws from the city of 8.5 million people, amid a growing effort across the globe to cut back on plastics.

If the bill becomes law, restaurants that continue to use plastic straws would be warned, then face fines between $100 and $400.
