GamePlanEarth & Healthy Harbor
Ravens staff joined Waterfront Partnership's Healthy Harbor Initiative to clean up litter, prime the "Green Alley" for a new painting mural and talk about solutions for trash pollution into the Baltimore Harbor.
GamePlanEarth in Ocean City, MD.
The Baltimore Ravens eco-friendly initiative GamePlanEarth teamed up with Ocean City Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation to promote the Strawless Summer Campaign. The Baltimore Ravens Cheerleaders and representative from Surfrider headed to the Ocean City Boardwalk and had restaurants/bars pledge to go strawless this summer, which commits to reducing single-use plastic.
In our efforts to continue making Baltimore a greener, more sustainable city, the Baltimore Ravens teamed up with M&T Bank, The Parks & People Foundation, and an organization called The 6th Branch for our annual Earth Day volunteer event. Founded in 2010, The 6th Branch (T6B) is a military veteran led organization that works with neighborhood leaders to transform vacant lots into new and vital community green spaces as well as provide support to Baltimore City Public Schools. The Ravens were able to make a big impact in the Baltimore community as we helped T6B with their ongoing restoration project of Ambrose Kennedy Park in Baltimore City.
