Zero waste and zero toxic emissions--hard to imagine what that means for any city. But there is a plan for Baltimore that proposes just that. We hear from consultant Gary Liss about how other cities are modeling what could work in Baltimore. Plus Terriq Thompson and Meleny Thomas of the non-profit United Workers, talk about ‘Baltimore’s Fair Development Plan for Zero Waste.’
