Keep Knoxville Beautiful members can participate in this program for an annual cost of just $25. When you enroll in Green Miles, you'll receive a pedometer (if you don't have one already), a litter picker, a printable journal where you can keep track of your steps, and regular Green Miles updates via email. You are encouraged to walk in your neighborhood and in your community, pick up litter and keep track of your mileage. It is a simple way for you to KEEP KNOXVILLE BEAUTIFUL!
After you report your first 5 miles, we'll send you a Green Miles t-shirt! After that, you'll receive rewards when you reach milestones like 10 miles, 25 miles, and so on. The program is self-paced-- you can do it every day, every week, or whenever you like.
Your Green Miles will continue to accumulate as long as you keep reporting your steps and stay a member of Keep Knoxville Beautiful.

Does your dog love doing Green Miles, too?
Many Green Milers pair up with their loyal canine companion(s) when they are picking up litter in their community-- so we've developed Green Paws!
When Green Miles members bring their dogs along on a litter pick-up, their (human) steps will count toward both Green Miles and Green Paws. After logging five miles, Green Paws members will receive a dog-friendly prize. As more milestones are reached, more doggie prizes will be awarded! There are no additional membership dues for Green Paws participants.
And while you're at it, meet Chipper, the canine mascot for Green Miles and Green Paws! Visit his Facebook page here to learn more about Green Paws and read about other Green Paws members.
