Green Up Day is organized by Green Up Vermont, a nonprofit organization that promotes the stewardship of the state's natural landscape and waterways and the livability of its communities by raising public awareness about the benefits of a litter-free environment. One of the ways it does this is by asking residents to pick up trash around their town each year.

This year, businesses are also stepping up to help ensure that Green Up Day has enough resources. Green Mountain Power will serve as the signature corporate sponsor for Green Up Day for the next three years. Other business leaders include Subaru of New England, VSECU, a credit union for everybody in Vermont, Casella Waste Systems and many more.
