Scenic beauty, abundant natural
resources, and a clean environment.
These are the things that we as Virginians treasure; and it is what
brings people to Virginia to explore, relax, and enjoy.
Since 1953, Keep
Virginia Beautiful has been
bringing Virginians together to build and protect Virginia’s vibrant
communities through litter prevention, waste reduction & recycling,
beautification, and education.
Virginia Green is the state’s partnership program to promote green
practices in tourism. More than 1300 Virginia
Green partners have committed to implement green practices within their
visitors can “travel green” by looking for Virginia Green registered partners
wherever they travel in Virginia via www.VirginiaGreenTravel.org.
In honor of its 60th
anniversary, the Virginia Tourism Corporation and
its Virginia Green program have pledged to promote all of the activities
associated with the year-long celebration of Keep Virginia Beautiful. These activities include:
Virginia Green is an active partner with Keep
Virginia Beautiful and it is encouraging all of its partners to participate in
the activities related to KVB’s 60th anniversary. Primarily it is challenging participants to
engage their staffs to “GIVE 60” minutes for the environment in some sort of
clean-up, recycling, or other beautification activity. It’s the perfect way to demonstrate
environmental commitment to their surrounding community and a great
team-building exercise for staff.
Tourism Corporation is
a sponsor of the 60th Anniversary Gala and is encouraging all of its
regional partners to help promote all of the events related to the 60th
anniversary of Keep Virginia Beautiful.
VTC plans to promote the GIVE 60 campaign throughout the year.
