Ski Areas Help Green Up Vermont

Saturday, May 6, 2023 is Green Up Day in Vermont. Vermonters across the state go out in their communities and pick up trash along roadsides and in public places. The organizing body, Green Up Vermont, provides green safety t-shirts, green trash collection bags and other resources for those looking to green up their local communities. In 2022, almost 20,000 volunteers worked together to pick up over 497 tons of trash.
