Baltimore City Council To Vote On Whether To Ban Plastic Bags


Take a drive around Baltimore and you’ll see them: blowing along sidewalks, tangled in trees, scattered in alleyways. Plastic bags are a significant source of litter in the city. They also wind up waterways and hurt wildlife. So, what to do about it? Well, the City Council is considering banning them.  Lead sponsor of the bill, Councilman Jim Kraft, joins us. 

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
