A whopping number – and it isn’t a tax increase. BurlingtonGreen goes right over the top. Kudos.

BURLINGTON, ON. April 16, 2013 Sometimes there is only one way to tell a story – let the story tell itself. BurlingtonGreen has been running a GreenUp-CleanUp campaign in this city for a number of years.

Last year’s numbers were very good – 6,000 people showed up. That emboldened BurlingtonGreen to set 10,000 as a target and – well let’s let them tell the story. In a media release here is what BurlingtonGreen had to say:
Wow! Never underestimate the enthusiasm and commitment of the people of Burlington to help keep their city beautiful! HUGE kudos to Burlington schools who are “sweeping” the city all week-long cleaning up their school yards and neighbouring communities.

Currently a whopping 12,800 people are signed up to participate and it’s not too late for you to register. We have about a dozen spots left in our Green Up habitat restoration event and unlimited space for you and your group to clean up wherever you choose in Burlington.

It takes a committed community to get out every year and clean up the trash – more than 12,000 Burlingtonians will be doing that this Saturday.

You can use your own bags and gloves or we can provide them for free if you register right away. All participants are invited to attend a Thank You Celebration at City Hall afterwards on Saturday, April 20th from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. where there will be a complimentary BBQ and refreshments, a free raffle, various eco-displays and activities for children.

Enter to Win: All schools and groups that register to participate and send in a photo of their clean up “in action” will be entered into a draw for a chance to win great prizes courtesy of Tim Horton’s. After the event, the action photos will be displayed on our popular Green Wall of Fame on the BurlingtonGreen website for all to enjoy.

Don’t delay ~ Register Today & check out the long list of the groups that have registered so far! HERE

You can feel the enthusiasm – which is just great. Good on you folks – you did it and everyone in the city will be better for your efforts.
