Shops in Ensenada, Baja California, "to stop" giving out plastic bags

The coastal city of Ensenada in north-western Mexico was to enforce a ban on free plastic bags and utensils from 1 January 2019, following a municipal council vote in July 2018 intended to curb plastic pollution. This was an amendment to Article 43 of the district Regulations on Environmental Quality Controls, El Vigía, a local newspaper, reported on 27 December. The daily was unsure whether or not the city had clarified the mechanics of enforcing the ban, but stated that stores had already begun informing customers of impending changes. The Ensenada council voted in May 2018 to join the UN's Clean Seas initiative, committing itself to curbing use of plastics and cosmetic microbeads.
