Ban single-use plastic bags in Maryland

Dear Legislator,

Each year, Americans throw away millions of single-use plastic bags. Too often, this pollution ends up in the ocean, where it can harm or even kill birds and marine animals like turtles and whales.

Using a plastic bag for a few minutes isn't worth polluting our environment for hundreds of years. I urge you to support a ban on single-use plastic bags to reduce pollution in our oceans and protect wildlife.
