We frequently preach the 3 R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The less litter we create, the less litter ends up on our roadways and scenic places. On November 15th of each year, we put a spotlight on this issue with America Recycles Day.
Our mission is to engage and unite Virginians to improve our natural and scenic environment through our 5 impact areas: To honor that commitment to the Commonwealth, we funded 30 grant recipients – one each day in the month of June.
With their funding, Clean Fairfax will purchase reusable produce bags to provide for shoppers instead of disposable produce bags.
Keep Virginia Cozy is going to use Green Grant funds to build and provide areas for those recyclables to be disposed of properly, rather than ending up in the landfill.
The organization will use their grant to reduce the amount of litter found in this area by installing pet waste stations, trash cans, and recycling bins.
Partnering with Eco-cell, the zoo plans to recycle electronics like smartphones, tablets, adapters, and chargers.
Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) in Charlottesville has been awarded a 30 in Thirty Green Grant of $1000 for its Recycling project.
