    Baltimore Green Week is a week-long citywide program comprising community events, hands-on activities, forums, and lectures throughout the city, including Baltimore’s premier green event – EcoFestival. Each event provides information about how a sustainable lifestyle benefits our community and us.

    This year marks the fourth year of Baltimore Green Week (BGW). Started by regional volunteers, it remains a volunteer-driven event. Its purpose is to increase awareness about how local residents can make the Baltimore region cleaner and environmentally safer for all who live and work here.

    More Than Sixty-Three Percent of Renters Recycle –

    May 30th press release from Apartments.com
    http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/070530/aqw504.html?.v=7
    Renters are going green as a recent Apartments.com survey indicates more than sixty-three percent of survey respondents who live in an apartment community recycle regularly. In comparison, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that 32% of the entire U.S. population participates in recycling programs.
    Of the renters who do recycle, fifty percent live in an apartment community that offers a recycling program for residents.
    ***This survey would be good to bear in mind when crafting a cohesive policy & initiatives for increasing Baltimore’s recycling rates & practices, particularly focusing on recycling practices within apartment and condo communities! Please let us know of any current figures/ surveys of figures for recycling rates in Baltimore’s apartments and condo communities.

    University of Maryland School of Law Professor Rena Steinzor Named Legal Technical Adviser to Baltimore City Environmental Task Force article at:

    http://www.law.umaryland.edu/news_detail.asp?news=256

    In a response to findings of arsenic in the soil of a Baltimore City Park, Mayor Sheila Dixon and Health Commissioner Dr. Joshua M. Sharfstein have announced the formation of a team of experts to investigate current and potential environmental violations. The School of Law’s Professor Rena Steinzor has been selected as legal technical advisor to the team, and joins leaders from the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the City Solicitor’s office, and the Federal Hill South Neighborhood Association.

    The Swann Park Task Force will report to the Mayor on why arsenic contamination in Swann Park is only coming to public attention decades after the contamination occurred, and what steps should be taken to avoid such situations in the future. “The community deserves to know why the Park is the focus of our attention in 2007 and not much sooner,” said Mayor Dixon. “I am pleased that such respected community leaders and national experts are willing to share their time and expertise.”

    Opportunity for ACTION with regard to Swann Park Toxic Park Issue– public comment period on Federal report OPEN through July 30th!

    That report, released June 14th, concluded that playing on arsenic-tainted soil in south Baltimore’s Swann Park is not likely to cause cancer or other illnesses, unless children eat the dirt.

    The 11-acre waterfront park, popular among childrens’ sports leagues, was closed by the city in April after tests showed arsenic in the ball fields from an adjacent pesticide factory that closed in 1976.
