Every Day is Earth Day in Virginia!
Our goals include becoming the leading statewide voice, providing a framework for improved communication and collaboration, cultivating and supporting sustainable programs, and engaging citizens by linking them to volunteer opportunities and information about 5 impact areas: Litter Prevention, Recycling, Waste Reduction, Beautification and Education.
KVB is a statewide non-profit that works year-round to educate and activate programs that support environmental issues facing Virginia. These projects include:
- Adopt-a-Highway – KVB partnership with VDOT where all are encouraged to claim 2 miles and commit to cleaning up 2-4x during the year.
- 30 Grants in Thirty Days – Since 2011, we have provided $178,000 for 230 different projects at schools, colleges, parks, counties and towns, environmental groups, associations, nonprofits, and service organizations!
- Get Caught in a Beautiful Act – Social Media Campaign where acts of environmental kindness are recorded and shared!
- Shiver in the River – KVB’s annual Winter Festival featuring a huge community clean-up, 5K Run/Walk and Jump in the James!
