Thank you for volunteering!

Thank you to everyone who Greened Up Vermont on Green Up Day! The weather couldn't have been better this year, with sunny skies and warm temperatures. A welcome change for so many after a long, snowy winter. Now Vermonters and our visitors can enjoy clean roadsides for the coming summer.

This year we distributed over 56,000 bags statewide. Thank you to VTrans for delivering them out to all the towns from the District Garages, it is always appreciated!

Thank you to our 330 volunteer Town Coordinators and Co-Coordinators. Your volunteer efforts to organize Green Up Day in towns statewide is an essential part of the program. It wouldn’t happen without all of you!

A final thank you to all of the individuals who donated to Green Up Day and to the sponsors that make Green Up Day possible. Thank you to our 2018 Green Up Day sponsors: Casella Waste Systems, Nokian Tires, Subaru of New England, Co-operative Insurance Companies, National Life Group Foundation, Eternity, WCAX, American Chemistry Council, Beverage Association of Vermont, Cabot Creamery Cooperative, JaniTech, Union Mutual of Vermont, UVM Health Network, VAST, VELCO, Vermont Gas, People’s United Bank, The Burlington Free Press, Concept 2, New Chapter, Rutland Regional Medical Center, Ski Vermont, Skinny Pancake, Swish White River, The Alchemist, Vermont Coffee Company, Vermont Mutual Insurance Group, and Washington Electric Co-op. Vermont Coffee Company was also Green Up’s official coffee sponsor again this year and is provided coffee to the 60 towns that requested it for their Green Up Day event.

Did you download the new App? What did you think about it? We’d love feedback on what you liked and what you’d like to see for future enhancements. Thank you to the 20 Code for BTV volunteers who donated 1,000 hours of their time to create the Green Up App. It is available for educational use nationwide through the Code for America program, of which Code for BTV is a part of. It was so much fun to be a part of such a great project!

And now, bring on spring!
