Planning to Be in Vermont? Join Green Up Vermont May 2

Because sometimes, we gotta give it up for our home state.

Green Up’s mission is to promote the stewardship of our state’s natural landscape and waterways and the livability of our communities by involving people in Green Up Day and raising public awareness about the benefits of a litter-free environment.

Vermont’s Green Up Day began in 1970 when 70,000 Vermonters joined forces around the state to clean up roadside litter that had accumulated during the winter months. In our 39th year, the Green Up legacy continues to foster the stewardship of the Vermont landscape. It’s about far more than picking up highway litter and cleaning up public parks. Green Up Day is about people of all ages from all walks of life joining together in community spirit to take care of Vermont. It teaches our children pride and respect.

Today, the Green Up tradition continues to grow thanks to the not-for-profit organization Green Up Vermont. Over 40,000 bags of trash are collected annually with the help of over 250 volunteer coordinators and co-coordinators and over 15,000 participants.
