A youth-led, action-oriented organization dedicated to merging public health, environmental advocacy, and legislation to change the world. Starting in Baltimore.
We did it!
Have you heard? The Maryland Styrofoam ban was passed by State Legislature. Additionally, the Baltimore Styrofoam ban was signed by the Mayor, and it goes into effect in October 2019. Thank you to all our partners for working with us to get this ban passed.
