3rd Union Hill Neighborhood Clean-Up May 28th

Green Unity is hosting our 3rd Union Hill Clean-Up

Saturday, May 28, 2011
Meet at corner of O St. & N 20th St. (directions)
Bring gloves & water bottle if you have them
Free snacks and beverages provided

Our last clean-up had a turn-out of over 35 neighbors & VCU faculty, staff, and students, and we collected 21 bags of trash, 15 bags of recycling and many large items. Let's see if we can do even better this time!

Free information about VCU sustainability and how to get city curb-side recycling pick-up will be on hand. We will also be selling rain barrels ($55), Green Unity water bottles ($10, 22oz, aluminum, BPA-free), Green Unity t-shirts ($10, 69% recycled Cotton), and reusable ChicoBags ($10, 100% recycled PET) to fundraise for Green Unity in order to continue our community and educational outreach events like this one.
