DC Bans the Foam
Good news from the Trash Free Maryland Alliance:
In a marathon session before summer recess, the DC Council held its final vote on July 14 on the Sustainable DC Omnibus Act of 2013, unanimously passing 11 environmental measures, most notably a ban on polystyrene foam food containers. While dozens of cities on the West Coast have enacted such policies, DC is the first major city on the East Coast to do so.

Believe it or not, decomposing leaves add to water pollution. When leaves wash into a creek without first breaking down on land, their decomposition uses up oxygen in the water, thus making it difficult for fish and other crittters to breathe. Lack of oxygen is what causes the infamous Dead Zones. You can make a difference! Pick up leaves in the street, on sidewalks and storm drains. Bag ‘em, or even better, make compost to beautify your garden!
We helped to Green the Across the Bay 10K on November 9 with a new campaign, Run Responsibly.TM
We provided recycling and composting at the Finishers Party thanks to a grant from BGE, and we joined in the "cup-free" mandate of the race by offering the Annapolis Green HydraPouch® for sale to runners in partnership with the Maryland State Council on Physical Fitness, Maryland Sports, and the Chesapeake Conservancy.
It's a great partnership -- linking physical fitness with environmental stewardship! Read moreWhy It's Important to Shop Local... All Year
