Baltimore, MD – Feb. 7, 2023 - Seven Mile Market and Market Maven would like to thank Baltimore Jewish Life for keeping the community informed on pending legislation regarding plastic bags.  Our advocacy in the process has resulted in a positive outcome for our community.  We would like to thank all our customers and all those concerned people who participated in the legislative process by letting their voices be heard by our elected officials.  

While we are happy that the concerns of small businesses have been addressed, we would like to encourage everyone to please continue reusing our bags as many times as possible and avoid littering by disposing of them properly.
We want to thank Councilman Izzy Patoka who introduced the bill, fought to add an amendment exempting small businesses, and for understanding our concerns. We understand passing a bill of such importance has many complexities involved.

Thank you, BJL
Thank you, Councilman Patoka 

...And let us do our share of not littering, reusing the bags and helping the environment.
