Green Up Day is on Saturday, a time for many to get outside and take out the trash. During the annual Vermont tradition, volunteers spend time cleaning up their communities.
Officials are reminding participants to wear gloves and leave things like needles alone.
Even though it’s one day a year, Green Up Vermont’s director says you can green up all year-round.
“Many Vermonters green up year-round, on their walks daily, weekly, that sort of thing. The other thing we can do is to reduce our waste, so reduce all our plastic water bottles, or getting a reusable container. When you’re out on a walk, bring a bag with you, pick up some trash,”.
