As each season puts its imprint on Greenwich, so does Greenwich Green & Clean. Since our founding in 1986, we have remained committed to developing partnerships to beautify the public spaces in our community. Our Projects include hanging baskets in Central Greenwich in the summer, and in the winter. We promote development of landscaping and maintenance of town highway exits, monitoring townwide clean-ups and overseeing recycling programs.
The members of Green & Clean invite you to take a walk with us through Greenwich and meet our devoted partners and volunteers dedicated to community service. We hope that you see the role that we play in this community, and that you will be inspired to support our worthy cause.
—Thomas J. Heagney, Chairman
Throughout the year the GG&C orchestrates the hanging of decorative floral baskets on Greenwich Avenue.
Bringing seasonal charm to the main commercial drag of the town is one of the initial efforts of the organization's mission to make Greenwich beautfiul. These baskets not only beautify the town in general, but encourage commerce by welcoming foot tourists and motorists to enjoy the floral ambience of the thoroughfare.
All across town we bring the spirit of Spring to your block.
In certain areas the Greenwich Green and Clean helps to orchestrate the planting of new flowers along major intersections and public land that would otherwise be bereft of color and the lively spirit of the Spring season.
Pollution has been a growing problem since before our inception in 1986.
We help fight the pervasive nature of litter with semi-annual clean up efforts around the town. Focusing on highly trafficed but less budgeted-for areas is a crucial step towards maintaining Greenwich's holistic beauty.
Residents' pride in their homes often begins at the point where visitors turn onto their street.
Many businesses seek to entice customers to enter their shops with wonderful streetside arrangements. The Greenwich Green and Clean recognizes both these and other intiatives that make our town look its best!
Our friends and partners at the G.R.A.B. advocate for recycling as an alternative to just finding efficiencies in trash removal in Greenwich.
While they're eager to work and learn new skills, many young teens find themselves without a constructive outlet for their time during summer, making GYCP work sessions highly desirable.
