Plastic Bag Ban
In Baltimore, the controversy continues over plastic bags. Monday night, the city council voted to ban the bags. Supporters say it will help get litter out of the harbor but others argue it’s bad for local businesses and their customers.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is hoping the city council will change their minds about their plan to ban plastic bags in the city.
Paper, not plastic. The Baltimore City Council is on the verge of banning plastic bags in stores—but there’s some doubt about whether it will really happen. The mayor is threatening to veto the bag ban.
When you buy something in the city from now on, you’ll have to ask for a plastic bag if you want one.
