The RVA Green Team Volunteer Network

Helping to make Richmond-area festivals and events more sustainable


The Virginia Green Travel Alliance, the City of Richmond's Office of Sustainability, and HandsOn Greater Richmond have partnered to create the RVA Green Team Volunteer Network. This new initiative will serve as a resource to help make events and festivals in our community more sustainable. Volunteers will help to make sure that event recycling and other green practices are done right. In fact, the RVA Green Team Volunteers only work on festivals and events that are trying to be a Certified Virginia Green Events through the state’s green tourism program –

Activities include helping event participants recycle, monitoring eco-stations, collecting and recovering food wastes, assisting with bike valets, etc. You will be considered an official RVA Green Team member, receive your RVA Green Team t-shirt, and get notices about other benefits and upcoming opportunities.
