The Problem

Dartmouth Green Up Day is an annual grassroots campaign to keep Dartmouth Green! We hope this project will become a community driven sustainable program that teaches awareness to future generations about the importance of of keeping our community clean.

Our Plan

We are a small troop of Girl Scouts that have partnered with the original Green Up Day founders to help build awareness to youth. We have reached out to other troops (both Girl Scout and Boy Scout) to help increase participation by encouraging them to participate in Green Up Day, but by also spreading the word around town. We have also partnered with he town to collect the bags of trash that we collect so that they will be properly disposed of and recycled. To date we have over 15 community groups and volunteer organizations participating in Green Up Day!
