At Bluegrass Greensource, we are getting ready for Earth Day! Yes, we know that it is only February, but April is just around the corner. Our big annual event for Earth Day is Main Street Clean Sweep! Main Street Clean Sweep is a community-led litter clean-up. Bluegrass Greensource provides bags, gloves, litter grabbers, and event t-shirts to participants.

Every year volunteers, community groups, families, churches, and local governments get together to clean-up 20 communities around the Bluegrass. In 2016, 1,000 volunteers came together in 22 Central Kentucky communities to pick up 515 bags of litter (over FOUR TONS of waste)!

This year Main Street Clean Sweep is on a Saturday, and we are looking for volunteers all across the Bluegrass to get involved in cleaning up their communities! Do you know of an area in your community that could really use some TLC? Plan to join us on April 22nd this year! There’s no better way to celebrate Earth Day!
