Program Details

Our 50th Anniversary Green Up Day will be on May 2, 2020
This milestone event will bring even more attention to the growing problem of litter on our roadsides and waterways but more importantly it will bring a reunited and reinvigorated passion to take care of our environment, both in Vermont and beyond.
Our 50th Anniversary allows us to review our sustainability as well as launch new educational programs and initiatives that will extend our efforts well beyond a one day event. Our goals are to make stronger connections in the business and educational communities, to make better environmental choices, to teach our youth to carry the passion for environmental health with them beyond Vermont borders, and to make a larger gloable impact, starting with the example of our one small state.
