Beyond plastic

Call for Submissions – Design a reusable bag!

Starting in January 2021, plastic bags will be banned and stores will charge 5 cents for paper bags in Baltimore City. Environment Maryland Research and Policy Center is working to make sure everyone who needs a bag has a bag, and we need your help to come up with a design and to spread the word! 

Check out the flyer below for full instructions and submit your designs here! We can’t wait to hear from you.

Will you stand with our forests?

Our forests are invaluable. They’re chock full of centuries old trees, provide irreplaceable wildlife habitat and act as a natural climate solution. It’s up to us to save our forests from clear-cutting. This week make a Giving Tuesday gift to help protect our forests.
