Fight for plastic bag ban in San Diego

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - More than 100 people gathered Tuesday in downtown San Diego in support of a plastic bag ban in San Diego. The city is considering implementing its own ban after the announcement that a statewide ban will not go into effect in July.

Last month, city council president Sherri Lightner said she would reintroduce a measure from 2013.

A statewide ban was set to take effect July 1st, but opponents obtained enough signatures to put it to a public vote. More than 100 cities in California have banned them, including Solana Beach and Encinitas.
