I was lucky enough to grow up on the Tred Avon River on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. My childhood was simpler than that of kids today. We didn’t have cable TV, smartphones or Wi-Fi. I spent much of my time beachcombing, fishing or boating with my dad. The water was my playground. That never changed. I now live in Baltimore, a city I partly chose for its access to the Chesapeake Bay. And today, the thing I love most is being threatened by plastic.
It’s time Maryland joined other states to ban more single-use plastic
