No more plastic straws or utensils in Malibu?

That's the decision the City Council made Monday night. The final decision came after council members already gave a tentative OK to a plastic ban earlier this month.

It will cover the sale and distribution of single-use plastic utensils, straws and stirrers within Malibu city limits.

The city has already banned plastic bags and Styrofoam food containers.

This new ordinance allows restaurants to provide non-plastic straws or utensils made of paper, sugar cane, bamboo or other biodegradable materials, but only upon request from customers.

The ban will take effect June 1.
