HISTORY

B-Baltimore Green was inspired by a trip Laurie Lessans (Founder) took to Indonesia where she discovered debris free communities.Inquiring minds were curious and Laurie was informed by some local friends that various neighborhoods compete for the cleanest areas in which they live. The competition involves a year long fun and engaging neighborhood process where the end result is a monetary donation, and media and city-wide recognition. Laurie saw Pride in these communities and realized this is the missing link to Baltimore Neighborhoods. The first thought was that it is time to bring back our Baltimore Pride. Deciding to combine inspiration with passion, B-Baltimore Green Corp was established with the purpose to educate and bring communities together to work at and create a debris-free Baltimore that we can all feel proud to call home.
