Green Up Day

Green Up Day is an important day to everyone. Green Up Day helps our planet to be cleaner and helps our planet to go into a positive direction. If we just let clutter build up disease could start or animals could go extinct from eating the clutter. If we continue to have Green Up Day our world will begin to be less cluttered every year. Green Up Day gets everyone in a positive mood to make the world a cleaner place. In conclusion, Green Up Day is a great tradition to make the world cleaner, hopefully one day there will be no more littering and everyone can throw away their trash responsibly.

Green Up Day is about removing litter from the 15,793 miles of Vermont’s local town roads. VTrans picks up litter from Vermont’s 2,707 miles of State Highway. You can visit the VTrans Operations Website this spring to see their progress, as they map it!
