You Can Make a Difference

Green Up Day - May 1st

Get outside on Green Up Day.

We know it isn’t your litter but Vermont needs our help to be beautiful! Pick up your free Green Up supplies from your Volunteer Town Coordinator and spend an hour or two picking up litter around your town. It makes a huge difference and it feels great to give back to your community.

DOWNLOAD THE APP

GREEN UP MENTOR PROGRAM 

Green Up has launched a mentor program that teams  motivated neighborhood students with their Volunteer Town Coordinator. Contact us to learn more.

REPORT YOUR WORK

Share your good work with your town coordinator. Collecting stats on # of volunteers, miles of roads, and # of bags of trash picked up helps us report progress. 

Be safe on Green Up Day.

•  Tie your trash bag closed when full – keep your good work in the bag!
•  Wear long pants and boot and always check your body for ticks.
•  If you see a needle or sharp material – find an adult and do not put it in
   your bag with the other trash. Put it in a thick plastic container, clearly mark “DO NOT RECYCLE” and duct tape the lid on, then put it into the regular trash. Visit www.healthvermont.gov for further information.
•  Road Caution – Always work facing oncoming traffic.
•  Follow State Covid-19 guidelines.•  Wear gloves.
•  Report your trash pick up stats to your town coordinator.
