Green Up Vermont; Saturday, May 2nd

This coming Saturday, May 2nd, is the 39th annual Green Up Day in Vermont. Started in 1970 as a way to clean up roadsides after the winter snow had melted, Green Up Day is a state-wide effort to pick up litter wherever volunteers can find it. Each year, more than 40,000 bags of trash are collected by 15,000 volunteers.

Beyond the benefit of cleaning up our state, Green Up Day is also a wonderful opportunity for community members of all ages to work together and to enhance respect and appreciation for the environment.

To find out what’s going on in your community, contact your area’s coordinator here and check out their participation guide to see how you can help.

We’re all about supporting a greener environment and way of living here at Vermont Lodging Properties. While you’re here, check out some of our Green Homes, as well as past posts on Green Living in Vermont.
