Green Up Day app now available
BRATTLEBORO -- Available now, the Green Up Vermont smart phone app offers volunteers for Vermont's 44th annual Green Up Day Vermont the opportunity to communicate with each other and track the progress of the cleaning effort. Volunteers can flag areas where hazardous materials are found, identify locations where additional help is needed, and provides a heat map to show where volunteers have been.
Green Up Day is scheduled for May 3. To learn more about it, visit greenupvermont.org.
The Green Up Vermont app is free and available at the Apple store and was created by Xenon Apps to help volunteers and the Green Up Vermont nonprofit monitor the progress of the clean up effort across the state of Vermont. Participants in the day's activities are encouraged to use the app to help better determine the impact of this annual volunteer event.
"We at Green Up Vermont are extremely excited about this new app. Giving volunteers the capability to track and map their efforts via mobile phone will help move Green Up Day into 21st Century technology," said Melinda Vieux, President and Melanie Phelps, Operations Manager.
"The Green Up App is an opportunity for volunteers to maximize their efforts," said Joshua Dickerson, Developer at Xenon Apps. "The app is free and we encourage volunteers to show the impact of Green Up Vermont Day."
