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.
Soil Cycles is dedicated to composting and reducing food waste using human-powered bicycles for transportation.
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.
Isle of Wight County services waste needs for approximately 14,000 households. The County will implement a project to prevent litter called, “Teach Up the Pick Up.”
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.
The organization will use their grant funding to combat cigarette litter in a skate park at Veteran’s Memorial Park.
