Now in its 46th year, Green Up Day has made Vermont a model for civic involvement in the service of environmental cleanliness and beauty. Join volunteers this May 7 to help remove litter from Vermont’s roadsides. Help keep Vermont green and clean!

Now on the Vermont Income Tax Return, line 29, taxpayers can choose Green Up for a charitable contribution. Checking the box is an easy way to help make sure Green Up Day continues well into the future. A donation of a portion of your tax refund or payment is tax deductible as a charitable contribution on next year’s tax return.

Congratulations to the 2016 Green Up Day poster design contest winner, Montpelier High School junior Charlotte Brace.

Green Up Vermont is the independent, nonprofit organization proudly carrying on the tradition of the first Green Up Day launched in 1970. It relies on donations, sponsors, and participants to keep the Green Up spirit flourishing.

Funds make it possible to raise awareness of the problems caused by litter, educate young people, promote this event, and coordinate extensive statewide planning that brings families, neighbors, and communities together to remove litter. Together on the first Saturday in May, Green Up participants help restore the natural beauty of our state.

Donate throughout the year. Support Green Up Day by making your tax deductible donation securely online at the Green Up website www.greenupvermont.org.
